The FREE event takes place at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center on Thursday, February 19th, from 4-7 p.m.
Join the SE Quadrant planning team at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center (ORHC) on February 19 to learn about the future of the Central Eastside. View maps, images and diagrams, and read and comment on the goals, policies and actions that have been developed over the last year and a half. Input from the open house, the Stakeholder Advisory Committee and other Central Eastside stakeholders will help shape the SE Quadrant Draft Plan to be released in March.
You’ll be able to learn more and share your ideas about how the plan will:
- Provide greater flexibility for new industrial uses, activate MAX light rail station areas, and enhance and connect areas of the district.
- Address parking needs and improve key freight, bicycle and pedestrian corridors.
- Continue to develop the riverfront as a destination and enhance river habitat.
- Provide park-like spaces and green infrastructure.
Environmental Services completed the SE Clay Green Street project last year and is part of the planning team for the Southeast Quad working to identify opportunities for improvements, including green infrastructure. The open house will include areas identified as priorities for green roofs, green streets, and trees to help manage stormwater runoff in the area.
