City council votes to sell Terminal 1 property
PORTLAND, Ore. – The city council has voted to sell Terminal 1, a large industrial area in North Portland that was recently being considered for an option for a temporary homeless shelter.
City Commissioner Dan Saltzman said last week that the property wouldn’t be used as a shelter, and that Portland would instead find different a housing solution for the winter.
Supporters of the option said the city-owned property could house up to 400 people.
On Wednesday, the city council made a unanimous decision to put the property up for sale.
The price of Terminal 1 will be negotiated by a broker, Commissioner Nick Fish told KATU News last week.
