Green Streets inLaurelhurst
By: City of Portland
Green stormwatermanagement is coming tothe LaurelhurstNeighborhood. You have probably seenthe construction going onaround Laurelhurst School.The City of Portland is constructing greenstreet facilities in Laurelhurst and surroundingneighborhoods as part of a citywide expansion of green stormwater management infrastructure. A green street is a vegetated curb extension orstreetside planter that collects stormwater runoff fromstreets. Vegetation and soil filter pollutants as the water soaks into the ground.Sanitary, storm and combined sewer pipes aremainstays of Portland’s wastewater and stormwatermanagement system. But facilities like green streetsand rain gardens complement the traditional pipesystem. They manage stormwater at its sourceto reduce volume, help reduce sewer backups in basements, protect water quality in rivers andstreams, and replenish groundwater supplies.

From The Editor
By: Jennifer Lewis, LNA Newsletter Editor
It’s hard to believe that it is now 2012. We arefortunate to live in Laurelhurst and the City of Portland. When Laurelhurst was
rst built, theCity knew even then the importance of parks and green spaces. The City continues to work towards making Portland sustainable and green. You willlearn a bit more about their Green Streets program in this edition. As we ushered in the New Year, many of us made resolutions we will struggleto keep. Mine include more adventures with my children (3 and 5) andgetting more exercise. With it being cold and the rain threatening to start inearnest, it’s hard to get my kids outside. But a short walk is usually withinmy coaxing abilities. There is an easy 3.5 miles walk through Laurelhurstthat Metro has put together highlighting historic homes and heritage trees.In fact, the Zelcova is in my back yard. If you make it out to try this walk,stop by and say hi. I always enjoy getting to know more of my neighbors.Thank you to all of you who have written to me to let me know what you would like to see in this newsletter. Your comments and support areinvaluable. The Laurelhurst Neighborhood Association couldn’t exist without your support. If you are interested in becoming more involved, we need your help! Kristine Akins has done an amazing job coordinatingthe Garage Sale the past few years, and has streamlined the process. Sheis starting a new business, and will not be able to serve as the Garage SaleCoordinator this year. If you would be willing to help continue this greattradition that helps to preserve the Laurelhurst Arches, please let me know. You may also want to help by coordinating the 4th of July Parade. AlisonKalmanson, who has coordinated it for the past few years has moved outof the neighborhood. If you would be interested in helpng with this family event, please contact me.I hope that you have a fantastic year in 2012!

The Creation oLaurelhurst
In 1850, Congress passed the Donation Land Act,encouraging folks to move west. If a man was mar-ried he could claim 320 acres, and an unmarried mancould claim 160 acres. To gain the deed to the land, asettler would have to live on and maintain the land forfour years.The area that became Laurelhurst was comprised of two claims. In 1869, William S. Ladd began to ac-cumulate land in this area. One purchase was of theHazelwood Farm in 1869. He accumulated 486 acresand created a purebred Jersey cattle farm, theHazelfern Farm.Ladd passed away in 1893, and in 1909 the Laurel-hurst Company. The Laurelhurst Company had previ-ously developed a neighborhood named Laurelhurstin Seattle, and stuck with the name that had been suc-cessful for them. The neighborhood was advertisedas “The Addition With Character.” Individuals could buy one to six lots each, with a plan for less than 1000homes across the 442 acres. Today there are morethan 1800 homes in Laurelhurst.Laurelhurst park and neighborhood developed to-gether. Soon after construction began on homes,the City of Portland purchased 31 acres to constructLaurelhurst Park with a natural landscaping ap-proach. In 1912 Emanuel Mische, Portland’s Park Superintendent from 1908-1914, designed LaurelhurstPark. There were several distinct sections to EmanuelMische’s plan that you can still see today: FirwoodLake, a picnic grove, a Rhododendron Hill, broadmeadows and a plateau, and a play park. In 2001Laurelhurst Park was named to the National Registerof Historic Places, the
rst city park ever listed on thenational register.If you know an interesting part of Laurelhurst’s his-tory, please share it with us by contacting theNewsletter Editor. It’s always fun to learn more aboutthis amazing neighborhood we live in.
Keep a level head in anup-and-down market.
