North Portland’s TOXIC Shelter Site – Unsafe for the Homeless?

YouTube player

In a concerning development for North Portland residents, a plot designated for a mass shelter for nearly 200 homeless people is suspected to be contaminated with toxins. The land, with a history of industrial use, was once a boat manufacturing site, leading to potential soil contamination. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality acknowledged the presence of toxins a decade ago. Despite this, Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services, owning the property, is proceeding with shelter plans, pending soil test results. Critics argue this hurried approach by the city neglects the health and safety of the vulnerable homeless population. The cost and duration of any required cleanup remain uncertain, intensifying worries about the site’s suitability and the city’s genuine commitment to solving the homelessness crisis.
