Barbur Concept Plan Open House Materials and Survey Questions

If you missed the Barbur Concept Plan Open House on December 5 at Markham Elementary School, you can still view the information that was presented and share your thoughts and comments about the future of Barbur Boulevard.

The open house featured various "stations" with information boards and posters. City staff were on hand to discuss the findings from staff and consultant research and record community members' comments. Participants were encouraged to fill out a short survey.

The information gathered at the open house and from the survey will help guide the Community Working Group over the next few months in developing a long term vision as well as alternative land use concepts for the six miles of Barbur Boulevard within the City limits. The final plan, expected to be completed in December 2012, will recommend key future transportation investments, stormwater solutions, and changes to City policy and zoning for this major southwest corridor.

Now you can weigh in online by reviewing the information provided at the open house and taking a brief online survey.

What Makes Portland's Central City Unique?

The CC2035 Steering Committee considered unique characteristics of the Central City at its second meeting.

During its second meeting on December 1st the Central City 2035 Steering Committee identified attributes they believe make Portland's Central City a unique place to live and work. Starting with the five major goals proposed for the Central City 2035 Concept Plan, as well as three themes introduced by Steering Committee members - Innovation and Exchange, Livability, and Connectivity - they engaged in a lively and reflective conversation. The committee identified ingenuity, engagement, and opportunity as just a few of the dozens of characteristics that define the Central City. Read the meeting minutes to see which other key words made the list. For examples of the way Portland is represented watch short clips from Greater Portland, Inc. and Travel Portland.
