Historic buildings provide a rich texture in the fabric of our communities.
Working with Portland Public Schools, City of Portland City Hall, and Multnomah County historic buildings, OHPD submitted the required SHPO forms for each of the contributing schools. We have a high level of success meeting the SHPO concerns and maintaining the intent of the project scope by involving SHPO early in the process to ensure that there will not be delays as the project progresses.
