Central City Natural Resources Inventory Available

The public review draft of the Central City Natural Resources Inventory is now available on the CC2035 website.

The Central City Natural Resources Inventory Public Review Draft report is now available. As part of the River Plan / Central Reach and Central City 2035 (CC2035) projects, the City is updating the existing Environmental Program, which includes information and management tools to protect and enhance natural resources. This update is needed to help meet watershed health goals and advance the City's compliance with local, regional, state and federal regulations. The first step is to produce an inventory of existing natural resources. Contact: Mindy Brooks at 530-823-7027, BPSWNRI@portlandoregon.gov.

N/NE Quadrant Open House June 29 and Upcoming July Meetings

This upcoming Wednesday, June 29, an open house is being held to present the concept alternatives under consideration for the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans project. Anyone with interest in planning issues regarding the Lloyd District, Lower Albina and Rose Quarter areas is encouraged to attend, learn about the exciting work being done and provide feedback to project staff. See the calendar or event flyer for further details about the open house, and bring your thoughts, inputs and ideas to help shape the future of the N/NE Quadrant area.

Meanwhile, the Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) met on June 16 to discuss some of these concept alternatives under consideration. The themes of open spaces, green systems, transportation, housing and employment and the role that they play in guiding the future growth of the N/NE Quadrant were discussed. These themes will also be presented and discussed at the upcoming open house.

Some of the background documents discussed at the SAC meeting, and a preview of the information to be presented at the open house are currently available online.

Stay involved by attending these upcoming meetings (see calendar for details):

  • Joint Land Use and Transportation Subcommittee Meeting on Wednesday, July 13 where the concept evaluation process and criteria will be discussed.
  • SAC Meeting #8 on Thursday, July 28 where feedback from the open house will be discussed, as well as a recommendation to reduce the number of freeway/local transportation concepts that continue to be studied.

Draft Central City Natural Resources Inventory Update

Draft NRI coming soon!

eastbank esplanadeAs part of the River Plan / Central Reach and Central City 2035 projects, the City is updating existing environmental information and management tools to help meet watershed health goals and advance the City's compliance with local, regional, state and federal regulations. The first step in this update is to produce an inventory of existing natural resources. The inventory is a technical document that provides information about existing resources and evaluates the functions and values they provide; it does not propose any new programs or regulations.

Stage one of the inventory provides maps, data and descriptions of the Willamette River, river banks and upland resources in the Central City, and more detailed descriptions of the natural resources in the N/NE Quadrant. Stage two will follow-up with detailed information for the NW, SW and SE quadrants. A draft of the Stage 1 material will be available for public review soon - look for it on the CC2035 website by June 23rd. Comments on the draft may be emailed to BPSWNRI@portlandoregon.gov. Contact Mindy Brooks at (503) 823-7831 for more information.
