The People Have Spoken Part II
The good folks over at the Portland Business Journal just posted the results of a poll where they asked their readers "Should the city of Portland demolish the Memorial Coliseum?" The "no" votes won out by 4 percentage points, with11% undecided.
This is great news and it shows that the citizens of the region are not ready to see the Coliseum torn down and replaced so hastily. To tell you the truth I have been very surprised at the support that the 'save the coliseum' folks have been getting. I really wish to thank the Portland architectural community for coming out in such numbers and going to bat for the "Glass Palace".
