Oregon Supreme Court; CAN-DO on Liberty and Broadway - Bits

In a nice appreciation today of the Oregon Supreme Court, Hannah Hoffman describes it as like "watching the ballet."

The building, too, is quite handsome, and it's 100 years old this year.

As the weather has so completely turned around from yesterday's glory, it's a reason to console yourself and take a moment to appreciate one of our most important institutions!

Its designer, William C. Knighton, is responsible for
several of Salem's loveliest buildings

"Watching the court is like watching the ballet"

The Supreme Court Building was nearly finished and opened in 1914

It was big news!

Maybe you've already said what you had to say on the NEN-SESNA plan process, but also tomorrow at the Planning Commission is a work session on the proposed new neighborhood plan -,2014.aspx
