After the streetcar stopped running, city leaders opted to plant a few trees and lay down pavement rather than rejigger the road or turn the triangle-shaped spot into something useful.</p></em><br /><br /><p> While architect Mark Nye and Architects Without Borders are working on a solution of their own, the Sabin Community Association will be holding a meeting on May 9th to determine what the triangle will become. David Sweet and Rosemarie Cordello, of <a href="http://www.sabinpdx.org/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">the Sabin Community Association</a>, had contacted Architects Without Borders to seek assistance on transforming this piece of land into something for the neighborhood.
