Good Beer Fuels Great Preservation Results
Portland, a city reknowned for planning and great beer, is blessed to have the McMenamin brothers. In an effort to create unique public spaces, they have rescued abandoned properties (ranging from an elementary school to the legendary Crystal Ballroom). These spaces reflect neighborhood history, support local artists, and provide great places to drink great beer. Planners can learn a great deal from this "organic" effort that just sort of happened.
