Overlook Neighborhood Update (March 11)

1) Learn about adidas’ expansion plans
2) Show off your garden


1) Learn about adidas’ expansion plans

Overlook residents have been wondering for months what adidas has in store for its expansion at its North American Headquarters. The wait is nearly over. Adidas will share its plans at two upcoming meetings.

First, on Thursday, March 15, adidas invites immediate neighbors of the campus to attend special meeting for a preview of the plans. This meeting is for only people who live adjacent to the campus. It will start at 6 p.m. in the yellow building. An adidas employee will meet neighbors at the door and direct them to the conference room.

Then, at the OKNA General Meeting on Tuesday, March 20, adidas officials will join the entire neighborhood to share its plans. That meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be at the Kaiser Town Hall. Check out next week’s update for a full agenda for the meeting.

If you are not an immediate neighbor who lives within one block of the adidas campus, please wait five days for the general meeting. The Thursday meeting is for adidas to engage with the people who might be most directly impacted by the expansion and construction.

2) Show off your garden

East Multnomah Soil, Water and Conservation District is organizing its 2018 Naturescaped Yard Tour, which will take place on Saturday, May 12. Does your yard show the hard work of a DIY gardener? Have you combined naturescaping ideas, stormwater features and native plants into your landscape? Even if only part of your yard is ready to show, EMSWCD wants to know about it. Hosting is a fun way to share your naturescaping experience with other gardening fans.

To apply, fill out their online questionnaire. If your garden is selected as a potential stop on the tour Yard Tour Organizer Angela will contact you in late March to schedule a visit to your yard. Deadline to apply is March 18.

The district also is looking for tour volunteers. Learn more here.
