Portland is experiencing a demolition epidemic and Restore Oregon is working for a better balance
Portland is one of the most developer-friendly cities in the nation and our neighborhoods are losing a century old home a day to the wrecking ball.  Our historic downtown buildings also have little protection from the developer’s bottom line.   Most immediately the Workman's Temple and the Lotus cafe are endangered by a mega-development.

What is the balance between property owner rights and the rights of their neighbors?
How can today’s Portland learn from yesterday’s architecture?
Are other municipalities doing better?

For answers to these questions and more, KBOO's Joe Meyer spoke with Peggy Moretti and Brandon Spencer-Hartle from Restore Oregon (http://RestoreOregon.org).
