STATE Historic Nomination Review
Time & Location
About the Event
We earned the City of Portland Historic Landmarks Commission nomination by unanimous vote and now it's time to earn the vote of the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation!
North Mall Office Building Room 124A 725 Summer St. NE Salem, OR 97301
Please show your support to save the long route of the Washington Park and Zoo Railway (WP&ZRy) with your presence and by giving oral and or written testimony to the State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation (SACHP) during their public National Register Nomination Review to make the WP&ZRy a historical designation.
Assume not enough supporters will show but your presence will be the action that convinces the committee to vote in our favor.
Assume not enough supporters will give oral testimony but your oral testimony will be the action that convinces the committee to vote in our favor.
Assume not enough supporters will give written testimony and your written testimony will be the action that convinces the committee to vote in our favor.
Actions are what will be needed to save the WP&ZRy and yours will be critical. It's what made it possible to earn the unanimous vote of the City of Portland Historic Landmarks Commission and it's what it will take to earn the vote of State Advisory Committee on Historic Preservation.
