Dozens attend first Tryon-Stephens Headwaters Street Plan Open House


On January 26th, over 70 community members attended the first Tryon-Stephens Street Plan project open house. They shared ideas about what street and stormwater improvements they’d like to see in and around the project area, watched a short presentation on the project (access the slides here), and learned about the project through several display boards set up around the room (see the display boards here).

If you missed the open house but would like to get more information, provide input and respond to the project survey, you can check out the Tryon-Stephens Headwaters Neighborhood Street Plan website. There will be another open house in the Spring 2015. We welcome your input.

Background: The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) and the Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) are working together on the Tryon-Stephens Headwaters Neighborhood Street Plan. The objective of the street plan is to establish a more connected local street and pathway network and to improve stormwater management systems within the area. Recommendations made in this plan will reflect community priorities and suggestions to achieve our transportation and stormwater goals. Recommendations may include:

•             Refine the primary walking and bicycling routes

•             Identify new connections (right of way)

•             Categorize streets by their character/context

•             Integrate PBOT and BES tools and coordinating investments
