The Eastmoreland historic district application has been submitted to the Oregon State Historic Preservation Office and is expected to be forwarded to the National Park Service on May 17th. There is only one sure way to halt this process: to have 50% plus one of the owners of property in Eastmoreland file notarized objections. It seems backwards, but if an owner doesn’t submit a notarized objection, their ownership counts as supporting the proposal. If two people own a home together, both of them have a separate vote.

With a turnout of over 66%, the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association poll showed that a majority objected to the Historic District. On March 16, the ENA Board voted to disregard the poll and continue anyway.

At this point in the process, only a notarized objection will meet the legal requirement.
