More than 140 people crowded into the classroom at Portland Fire & Rescue Station 02 to hear Chet Antonsen’s development plans for three acres of farmland in Argay Terrace at November’s Argay Neighborhood Association meeting.
The atmosphere was tense.
Following presentation of the development plans, Antonsen fielded questions from audience members.
Concerned about the development’s effect on property values and livability with increased traffic, residents were not happy; furthermore, they were not inclined to take the builder’s word for anything.
After Antonsen, new ANA board member and real estate expert Al Brown showed how easy it is for the city to open every dead-end street in Argay when adjoining farmland is developed.
