Rental Services Office

Click here for RSO Traveling Helpdesk schedule.

Are you a landlord wondering if you’re exempt from paying Relocation Assistance? Are you a recently (or soon-to-be) displaced renter wondering if you are eligible for Relocation Assistance?

The Portland Housing Bureau’s Rental Services Office (RSO) was created as a resource for renters and landlords of residential properties to receive technical assistance and information about Mandatory Relocation Assistance, Portland Renter Additional Protection (PCC 30.01.085), and related topics such as new state-wide limits on rent increases and just-cause requirements for terminating rental agreements.

Starting in July, a new RSO Traveling Helpdesk will be visiting libraries across the county on Saturdays throughout the summer to assist people in the neighborhoods where they live and work with their questions on landlord/tenant laws.

St. Johns Bridge Maintenance
Aug
13
to Oct 31

St. Johns Bridge Maintenance

Work requires a sidewalk closure for 60 days.

Travelers should expect a temporary speed reduction, a sidewalk closure and up to five nighttime single lane closures.

This August, we will begin maintenance work on the St. Johns Bridge. The work will improve the strength of the bridge by applying steel reinforcement to the framework under the bridge. Work will not be visible from the top of the bridge, however scaffolding will be visible from below. The new steel will match the existing paint color.

The work is expected to last 60 days and will require a full 24/7 sidewalk closure on one side of the bridge at a time. One sidewalk on the bridge will be open at all times. Work is expected to be complete in October 2019 but is subject to change based on weather and site conditions.

IMPACTS TO PEOPLE WHO WALK, ROLL AND RIDE BICYCLES

The St. Johns Bridge will remain open to pedestrians and bicyclists during the project.  People who walk, roll and ride bicycles on the sidewalks of the St. Johns bridge will share one sidewalk when the other sidewalk is closed for 30 days at a time for the duration of the 60-day project. There will be a temporary pedestrian access route to guide pedestrians and bicyclists on the sidewalk across the bridge during construction. People on bikes can also choose to ride in the vehicle travel lane.

There will be a temporary speed reduction on the bridge to maintain a safe environment throughout the construction zone.

IMPACTS TO PEOPLE WHO DRIVE

The St. Johns Bridge will remain open to vehicles during the project. In addition to the temporary speed reduction, we are expecting up to five nights of single lane closures on the St. Johns Bridge from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. WHY IS MAINTENANCE NEEDED ON THIS BRIDGE?

Due to changing vehicle weights, bridge load ratings need to increase to meet current design standards. By adding more steel reinforcements on the bridge’s structural framework, bridge stability is improved and the bridge will be more capable of carrying increased traffic.

This work will maintain long-term safety by ensuring the bridge can continue serving thousands of travelers a day.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE

Work will be performed on scaffolding under the bridge. It will not be visible from the top of the bridge. Workers will use the closed portion of the bridge sidewalk to stage the equipment and tools used in the project. While people using the Willamette River, the railway or Cathedral Park won’t have travel impacts, they may notice temporary scaffolding beneath the bridge while the project is underway. Temporary pedestrian routes and construction signs will be visible on the bridge.

CONSTRUCTION NOISE

Daytime construction noise will occur periodically from heavy equipment, construction trucks, beeping vehicle reverse noise (a requirement by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and other equipment, such as generators, compressors and pneumatic tools. Those working or living in the area may be affected. All of the work will happen during the day.

SAFETY

  • Be patient. Walk, drive, roll and bike safely.

  • Stay alert. Watch for temporary construction signs, and pedestrian and bicycle routes on the bridge.

  • Share the sidewalk. Be courteous to other people who are walking, rolling and biking on the bridge.

  • Walk your bike. When passing other pedestrians on the sidewalk, we strongly recommend walking your bike.

To sign up for email alerts, more information and travel impacts, go to tinyurl.com/StJohnsMaintenance.com. For 24/7 road conditions and traffic alerts visit tripcheck.com or call 5-1-1.

TriMet - Line 4 Fessenden proposed route change and stop closure in St Johns

TriMet is partnering with City of Portland to improve safety and accessibility in St. Johns through the North Lombard Main Street – St. Johns project, which includes marked crosswalks, curb and bus stop extensions, signalized pedestrian crossings, and street repairs on N Lombard.

 This project provides an opportunity to reduce travel time and simplify the routing of bus line 4-Fessenden in St. Johns. The current 4-Fessenden route to St. Johns diverts from N Lombard via N Syracuse and N Baltimore serving stop ID 13869 on N Syracuse in front of Schrunk Riverview Tower. In light of the City’s safety improvements, TriMet would like to change the 4-Fessenden routing to keep it on N Lombard in both directions to reduce confusion for riders and improve safety and operations by removing two turns.

 This route change would close stop ID 13869 on N Syracuse; riders traveling towards N Richmond would use the 4-Fessenden stop on N. Lombard @ New York ID 9505, which would be served by the 4-Fessenden as part of the route change. Additionally, riders traveling towards N Richmond can use the stop on N Ivanhoe @ Baltimore ID 11837 that’s served by 11-Rivergate/Marine Dr (weekdays only) and 16-Front Ave/St Helens Rd (Monday – Saturday). Riders traveling towards Downtown Portland would continue to use the 4-Fessenden stop on N Lombard @ Baltimore ID 8480.

 

To understand the potential impact of the route change, TriMet met with Shrunk Riverview Tower management on July 29, who were open to the route change, given the relatively short distance to the 4-Fessenden stop on N Lombard @ New York.

 TriMet is also interested in your comments or concerns. Please share your feedback by August 23rd.

Pre-Registration Required!*

To register please call registration number at 9:00 a.m. on August 5, 2019

REGISTRATION NUMBER: 503-273-8236

*HOURS MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO PRE-REGISTRATION

All Information is subject to change.

STEP ONE: Call the Multnomah County Courthouse at 503-988-6279 ext. 4 to find out how much you owe. Ask about traffic and parking tickets too. Please do this BEFORE you show up to Legal Services Day. If your license is suspended, call DMV and ask what tickets are holding up your license.

STEP TWO: Do community service with a nonprofit OR participate in treatment. Complete one hour for every $100 that you owe, up to 80 hours (all money is waived after 80 hours). Hours need to be completed before Legal Services Day.

STEP THREE: Ask the nonprofit you worked for or your treatment provider for a letter on letterhead with their contact information that says how many hours you completed and when. You will not be able to have your fines waived without this.

STEP FOUR: Call and register for Legal Services Day on the registration date listed above. Operator will be answering calls as they come in and you will need to talk to a person to get on the list. You will need to be on the list to come to Legal Services Day. Do not leave a message.

STEP FIVE: Once you are registered then bring your letter to Legal Services Day! A judge will sign an order waiving your fines and fees after verification of your hours.

STEP SIX: Fees can take at least one month to be waived in the court system - please be patient. Legal Services Day does not waive the $75.00 fee to get your license reinstated. That is a DMV fee that we do not have authority to waive.

What Counts For Your Hours?

 Hours need to be completed within the last 6 months from the day of the Legal

Services Day you attend.

 Community service hours must be done for a nonprofit organization. We will not

accept hours done for an LLC or a for profit organization.

 There will be an exception to alcohol, drug, or other addiction treatment, including AA/NA. If you

are engaging in AA/NA be prepared to speak with the judge about verification of

your hours.

 If you complete group counseling, individual counseling, job counseling or

parenting classes please make sure your letter has contact information of your

service provider.

 Hours cannot be verified by or be completed for a family member.

 Hours cannot be court ordered or part of your sentence. If you are engaging

in additional treatment or community service hours than what was required of

your sentence make sure that it is noted in your letter.

 Remember, only Multnomah County fines and fees are waived. Legal Service day

cannot get rid of restitution, compensatory fines, probation fees, or child support.

 Your judgement will be honored at Troutdale Municipal Court. Once you get your

judgement you will need to bring it into the court house at 219 E Historic

Columbia River Hwy, Troutdale, OR 97060 to get your fines there waived,

 If you believe you have been missed a ticket at a prior Legal Services Day you can call

the Metropolitan Public Defender Community Law Division at 503-225-9100.

The Disability Justice Workshop

Disability culture is vibrant and beautiful; however, these are not the words most people use to describe our community. The workshop will go beyond typical disability training on ADA access to uncovering Disability culture, understanding Disability Justice Principles, and learning about access intimacy. Disability Justice (DJ) principles are critical in progressing the Disability movement to include leadership by those most impacted, intersectionality, interdependence, and unconditional love. This workshop will go deeper into these ideas and process how we can implement them in our daily lives

Storytelling to End Police Violence and Incarceration

SURJ Black Lives Matter invites you to join the community panel discussion with Pacific Northwest Family Circle, one of their partner organizations  who have helped build a campaign to demand justice for their loved ones lost to police murder. Families want to build a new justice system run by our community, where people can feel safe and not live in fear- that all starts with community accountability. 

SURJ is working to hold the District Attorney accountable, an elected official who often runs unopposed, and has the power to decide if officers who murder can continue to serve as police, as well as what kinds of sentences and alternatives to incarceration are available to folks targeted by police.

At the event on Wednesday, June 5th at PSU (Parkmill 183) from 7-9 PM family members will tell stories of their lost loved ones, and  why they want to elect a DA that listens to the people. A formerly incarcerated organizer will also speak about how the DA impacted his sentencing and life, so everyone can understand exactly why election involvement is important, change the conversation around the election, and take a side for justice. Organizers from SURJ Black Lives Matter action group will talk about their joint campaign with  Oregon DA for the People, and why they believe getting involved in this election is connected to larger movements challenging white supremacy.
