This past August, John DiLorenzo, one of Portland’s most prominent attorneys, decided he wanted something done about the homeless encampment on Southwest 12th Avenue and Southwest Taylor Street.
The historic apartment building he co-owns, The Gentry, was just across the street. DiLorenzo said his tenants had complained about gunshots and drug deals at the camp all summer long.
So had nearby property and business owners, who were filing a deluge of complaints to any city official they could find. The owner of a diner a block to the east said she had called the police twice in two days, the second time for a woman possibly overdosing and flailing on the cement “like a fish.” Representatives for the Medical Dental Building on Southwest 11th Street had taken to reporting the camp to the city’s online portal weekly, sometimes daily, over their frustrations at a sidewalk littered with trash and needles.
