As you may have heard by now, the Buckman Historic Association is preparing an application to have portions of the Buckman neighborhood designated as a National Historic District. You can read more about it at these links:
- Buckman Historic Association home page: http://www.visitahc.org/content/buckman-historic-district
- Article about the proposed district on OregonLive.com: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2011/12/southeast_portlands_buckman_ne.html
- Post on the Portland Architecture blog: http://chatterbox.typepad.com/portlandarchitecture/2011/11/getting-history-and-fees-right-in-irvington.html
Some neighbors are opposed to the Historic District designation, for reasons primarily based around the design review process and associated fees that would come with it.
Neighbors who wish to register their objection to the application must submit a notarized objection form. Buckman resident Greg Moulliet is hosting a notary at his home tomorrow, Saturday, January 14th, for anyone who wants to come by, fill out an objection form, and have it notarized. You can find more details and a link to Greg’s website below.
(NOTE: In order to stop the proposed Historic District, 50% of Buckman property owners + 1 must submit a notarized objection form. So, if this is something you feel strongly about, be aware that every objection counts!)
