Central City 2035 Symposium Series: Addressing challenges, brainstorming solutions

BPS E-news Issue 8

Central City 2035 (CC2035) is hosting a Symposium Series this fall and winter to focus attention on some key enews logoissues within the Central City. The development of a Concept Plan for the Central City is organized around six integrated themes, which will be featured in the series:

  • Economic Vitality

  • Housing and Community Development

  • Urban Design

  • Mobility

  • The Willamette River

  • Civic and Cultural Life

At each symposium, a group of experts and experienced professionals, as well as interested community members, will gather to discuss one of these themes. Most themes will be discussed in two separate meetings: The first will examine existing conditions, constraints and opportunities; the second will focus on the development of tools for setting direction.

Staff will analyze this information — as well as feedback from intermittent Open Houses and Public Forums — to create policies, goals and actions for CC2035.

WHEN AND WHERE

The Series begins this Friday, October 22nd. Housing and Community Development will be the topic of the first two
symposiums:

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Portland’s Central City is home to thriving urban neighborhoods and the core of the regional economy. It is a resource for the metro area with a concentration of jobs, innovative cultural and entertainment destinations, bustling retail districts, urban universities and the Willamette River. It is important that we adequately plan for the continued success of this vital part of the city and region. CC2035 is an update to the 1988 Central City Plan. It will address new challenges and opportunities to ensure a vibrant and sustainable Central City, now and in the future.
