In the August Mid-Couty Memo there is an article advising that Multnomah County Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson is asking for input on the next use for the four acres that include the old Sheriff's building last known as the Hansen Shelter located on the SE corner of 122nd Ave. and NE Glisan. The library system and the David Douglas School District have expressed interest in using it, but those requests can be put in the back section of the plot. At a June 26th meeting, held to begin the public discussion of the property's future use, there was strong push back on affordable housing. People voiced requests for market-rate or upscale housing so local businesses can be supported by people living in the area.
