SAN-lot-tree-flyer-colorCome to the next SAN general meeting learn about the plans

Since the I-205 S at Killingsworth Ave. on-ramp was expanded, there’s an opportunity for new trees to be planted in the area referred to as the “SAN lot”. This name came about because the old-timers in the neighborhood referred to this field next to I-205 (along NE 92nd Ave north of NE Sandy Blvd) as the “sandlot” — their pronunciation dropping the ‘d’. Before the I-205 freeway was completed in 1976, the SAN lot was the Sandy Blvd Drive-In movie theater.

The planting will be in December of this year. Learn more details at the meeting. View the draft of the proposed tree planting plan for the SAN Lot area.

A representative from Friends of Trees will be at the meeting to talk about the types of trees being planted and answer any questions. ODOT still needs to get final approval on the proposed plan prior to moving forward. We look forward to hearing any helpful input from Sumner residents.
