Portland’s latest Temporary Alternative Shelter Site is set to open in North Portland to the west of the Heron Lakes Golf Club and Portland International Raceway, Mayor Ted Wheeler said.

The site is set to open in the coming months and while its primarily for RVs and campers, there will also be pods and space for people to set up tents.

The location at 10505 North Portland Road is owned by the city’s Bureau of Environmental Services, but will be managed by Urban Alchemy, which runs three other city-sanctioned sites.

The mayor’s office is working with several groups, including the St. Johns Neighborhood Association, on a Good Neighbor Agreement and a neighborhood advisory team.

“Our initial site, which opened at the end of July, has proven to be a successful proof of concept and has reached capacity,” said Mayor Ted Wheeler. “The need in our community far exceeds available resources and I look forward to opening this next site as quickly as we can to help get vulnerable Portlanders off the streets. Just in the last four months, the City of Portland has collectively opened four shelter sites between Safe Rest Villages and TASS, expanding the shelter continuum by well over 400 spaces.”
