  1. This address, 4611 N Minnesota Ave, is on a dead end street with very little parking. They want to put in 23 apartments with NO additional parking. This used to be a nice neighborhood but now, that plus the proposed 8 story building where the old Peninsula Childcare building sits, also with no parking included in the plans, and nobody is going to want to live in Portland anymore. You won’t be able to see the sun even when it is out.
