Stakeholder Open House – English Version – June 2, 2011

June 2, 2011
It is with pleasure that Hacienda CDC invites you to the Open House on a new Portland Metro Area Latino Public Market, which we are tentatively calling Portland Mercado. Hacienda CDC has been working for the past four months with Adelante Planning, a group of PSU Masters in Urban and Regional Planning graduate students, on an innovative community economic development project that will serve to revitalize an area in need, empowe…r local Latino residents, and provide a unique retail opportunity for all of the Portland Metro Region to enjoy. Hacienda also has the technical assistance of the Latino Economic Development Center, which helped develop the successful Mercado Central in Minneapolis.

We believe a Latino Public Market will be a transformative community economic development project for the Latino community in the greater Portland region. We invite you to hear about this exciting idea for the following reasons:

• You are a stakeholder who may want to join the technical advisory committee for the Mercado project
• Your field of work indicates an opportunity for collaboration on this project
• You may be interested in partnering in other ways with Hacienda CDC to help make this market a reality and help give local Latinos a place that celebrates their culture and creates a center of community life.
