Portland has a lot to learn about historic preservation, which is evidenced by the recent debate over the Made in Oregon sign and the current debate regarding the Memorial Colliseum.
Portland takes pride and models itself as a green city. Preservation, particularly the reuse of significant historic buildings and landscapes, is one of the greenest things we can do. The waste of demolishing a building and using new materials to build anew can be avoided if we are creative in thinking about how we can reuse and adapt a historic building for modern use.
