Judge Issues 60-Day Injunction for URM Placards
Oregon US District Court Judge John Acosta issued a 60-day injunction for Portland's placarding requirement for unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings. An ordinance requiring the placards passed through the city council with a 3-0 vote last October, and commercial building owners were given a deadline of March 1st to post the signs. Earlier this week, Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty introduced a resolution that would delay the requirement until November 2020, but it has not yet gone before the Council for a vote. The evidentiary hearing for the lawsuit against the placarding ordinance was originally scheduled for February 26th, but Judge Acosta has rescheduled it to April 25th. Read more.
