Eastmoreland historic listing pursued again

Opposition to redevelopment helped inspire the historic listing drive in the Eastmoreland naighborhood.

The on-again, off-again drive to list the Eastmoreland neighborhood as a historic district is on again.

The Oregon State Historic Preservation Office has resubmitted the nomination to lthe Southeast Portland neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places with a recommendation that it be listed. The nomination had previously been blocked when it appeared that a majority of property owners objected to the nomination. But, following a third review of the nomination, SHPO staff determined that only 48 percent of owners have filed objections.
