CURB PDX has launched its campaign to raise funds for preservation and restoration of the building at 3962 NE MLK, once home of the Burger Barn, and many other users over the 114 years this building has been standing. Check out the fundraising campaign’s webpage here; on facebook to follow updates, here.
From the fundraising page:
The long term effects of this type of “gentrification” as it is often called is an incredible loss of community tradition, history, and value. The opportunity to engage and educate affected communities through the outreach of this project will help affected communities capture and sustain some of what has been lost, or taken away.
The CURB Project will also promote the value and process of preservation, documentation and conservation.
