A blow for Commissioner Randy Leonard and other backers of the Beavers ballpark in Lents: of the roughly 230 Portlanders who turned up to the big Lents urban renewal meeting tonight, 70 percent said they saw no benefits at all in constructing a stadium in Lents Park.

The city employed some nifty electronic polling to gauge the opinions of the packed, sometimes hostile audience — other results of a brief Q&A showed that three times as many neighbors think urban renewal dollars should go toward promoting smart transit and green space than think the money should be invested in turning Lents into “an entertainment destination.”

Updates and photos - plus video of Merritt Paulson withstanding the force of 200 “Boo!”s - tomorrow morning.
