Jon Peterson, originally from Seattle, attended the University of Oregon, not only for his undergrad degree but also for his Masters in Architecture. He later settled in Bridgeton and is our historian.
Jon can recall what happened when the trees were cut on the levee, and all kinds of things that we newcomers can't possibly imagine.
An architect by trade, he also spent many years teaching and publishing. He is mentioned in Who's Who in the West, 15th through 18th Editions, and in Who's Who in America, 39th and 40th Editions.
He was a consultant for the John's Landing Renewal Project and among his commissions were a Passive Solar Office, a Tennis Shelter, and the Jacobsen Houseboat.
Jon is a very welcome addition to the board. He's got stories and thoughts that will fill many a pleasant hour in the neighborhood.
