More News from Lents

The Trib reported last week that the Portland Development Commission had selected a firm to develop the old Lents Little League site.

Now comes more evidence the City of Portland has not forgotten about Lents even though an effort to relocate the Triple-A Portland Beavers to a proposed new baseball stadium at Lents Park is dead.

On Monday, Aug. 17, Commissioner Nick Fish, who's in charge of the city's parks bureau, plans to visit the outer-Southeast Portland 'hood to talk about the future of Lents Park.

Not to get all cynical or anything, but that's probably a smart move for a commissioner facing re-election in May. Add to that the fact that Fish is an East Coast transplant with a Harvard degree, and it's not hard to see why he might enjoy more opportunities to connect with residents in the working-class neighborhood of Lents.
