Foster / Holgate Neighborhood – Then and Now

Neighborhood Revitalization from Early Settlement Roots

The intersection of SE Foster and SE Holgate has a long history. It spans the early settlement days to the Streetcar Era and Mid-century automobile-centric period of Portland history. Today there are signs of neighborhood revitalization in this neighborhood, also known as Mt Scott/Arleta.

Join us for a leisurely stroll and exploration of this transitional SE Portland neighborhood. Recently, the “Foster Road Streetscape” plan has become a flashpoint of controversy in the neighborhood.
