PORTLAND-A contaminated industrial site in North Portland is being redeveloped under a two-year old, Federally-funded brownfields cleanup program. A nonprofit agency that provides work and life training for the developmentally disabled is using the program to transform the site into its headquarters.

When the $3-million project is completed next summer, hopefully, Port City Development will have six units of transition housing and work-training facilities on the property, located at 2110 N. Williams Ave. The project was originally scheduled to be complete this past December, but cleaning away the lead and acid residue took longer than expected, despite not being as bad as expected.

Port City’s development is being funded in part by $2 million in Multnomah County Revenue bonds to be paid off with car rental taxes. Port City has raised the remaining $1.3 million required for issuance of the bonds.
