Some businesses still bristling at having to pay Portland’s clean energy tax, reports the Oregonian. Included in the tax on “large retailers” are general contractors working on large projects, for clients including OHSU.

Portland Architecture looked at whether Sustainable Building Week can revive “Portland’s lost momentum”.

Portland Public Schools is eyeing a summer deadline to finalize details of a 2020 construction bond. The measure could include upgrades to Cleveland, Jefferson and Wilson high schools.
