HBA focuses on West Linn for 2012 Street of Dreams

by:  J. BRIAN MONIHAN The 2012 site of the Street of Dreams may be at Teresa’s Vineyard estates off Salamo Road in West Linn.

The Home Builders Association is eyeing a not-yet-built subdivision in West Linn for the 2012 NW Natural Street of Dreams.

The city has announced that the Theresa's Vineyard estates on Salamo Road is the tentative location for the event, which showcases building and design trends, home technology innovations and creative landscaping.

Senior planner Chris Kerr said the proposal is to have the Street of Dreams take place on 10 lots in the planned 30-lot subdivision in August 2012.

Kerr said construction activity is getting underway with grading work on the property, and property owners are supposed to communicate with neighbors to discuss any Street of Dreams concerns. Once the infrastructure is ready at the site, the developer would need to submit a final subdivision plat to the city and county before building construction could begin.

But even with some early construction work ready to start, the actual 2012 home tour is a long way off.

This year's Street of Dreams event is centered on the Brentwood Estates on Bull Mountain in Tigard.
