Have You Seen the PDC's Hot New Indie Flick?

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Mon, Dec 7, 2009 at 4:48 PM

Ok... so, uh... since when does the Portland Development Commission produce slick little videos setting discussion of development projects to indie soundtracks?

Seriously, watching this new video about the resurrected Burnside Bridgehead made me feel like renting Garden State and smoking a clove. That's not a bad thing. This is definitely the first city outreach video I watched voluntarily start to finish that didn't involve "Officer Chauncey Curl" and action-packed reinactments of cyclists getting hit by a cars.

The results are in!

Portland's love list: parks, bike lanes, soup kitchens, restaurants, "clothiers"
And hate list: Starbucks, gyms, parking lots, condos, corporations

Meetings about the new Bridgehead start in January.
