Saving Alpenrose?

On Wednesday the Portland Herald had an opinion column calling for the local governments to buy Alpenrose and make it a park. Little League, the village, opera house in addition to the velodrome and CX events.

Any more info on this? Can we the cycling community do more?

Sorry, the opinion piece was in the Portland Tribune. Not the Herald.

Seems like a great idea. Somehow I doubt the funds are there to acquire, let alone maintain a new park of that size.

Maybe they could use the housing bond to buy it and develop it. Or develop part of it and leave the rest as a park?
