City Hall Looks to Lents Neighbors for Lead on Stadium


Statements from the Mayor's spokesman that basically place put these folks in the hot seat at this point, seems premature and even unfair.

The advisory committee can hardly rule on the efficacy of an "investment in Lents" when their key questions have not been fully addressed.
Baseball, soccer, football, jai alai, whatever. If Merritt Paulson is behind it, I don't think I'll feel comfortable supporting it after this latest attempt to strongarm public funds for his private business.
That the deed of the land to Portland states that the park "shall be used and occupied exclusively for public park and playground purposes" or else Portland looses the land should end consideration of Lents Park for Merritt Paulson's land grab, unless the city wants to fight for this in court.
