The North Campus situation really has me concerned. the who space is historic, including the parklike lawns. Many different amateur teams use the park for evening and weekend play. I have seen baseball, rugby, football, soccer, and many many people walking dogs, throwing frisbees, flying kites,taking walks. The property deserves to be a park, we have few other parks in that area of the city, and I think it needs to be maintained as a park for the surrounding community. a small bit of development like at Bush park, some running trails, etc would go a long way to making it a bit more useful. i would hate to see that whole property ruined by apartments and condos as i have heard may happen there. One of the historic buildings could even be repurposed to be an activity center with gyms and weight room, indoor running track, like the YMCA. This works for the city of Portland and the whole community would benefit by this sort of facility, with a small day use fee. Please follow the decision process. I would work towards and testify before the city for such a community development.
