The citizens group behind the fight against Wilsonville's URA for SoloPower wants to know what the city will do with the property now that SoloPower has moved on.
Stop Urban Renewal Giveaways worries that the city will give the urban renewal area to another company now that SoloPower has chosen to build in Portland instead.
