Public hearing on West Quadrant Plan draws crowd

Forty community members offer their testimony on the future of the Central City’s west side

Members of the public testify on the West Quadrant PlanOn Sept. 9, 2014, the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) welcomed testimony on the West Quadrant Plan Proposed Draft at a public hearing. Central City residents, business owners and other interested individuals packed the room to offer testimony – some supportive, some critical – on the current draft.

Building heights, particularly those in the West End, Pearl District and Old Town/Chinatown were the subject of a majority of the testimony. Many residents from those areas requested significant decreases in height limits – proposed, but mostly existing. Others testified in favor of maintaining and/or strategically increasing heights in some areas of the West Quadrant. Additional subjects of testimony included parking, affordable housing, economic development, historic preservation, equity, bridgehead development and the environment. 

Watch the hearing.

The written record will remain open until Oct. 1, 2014, which means Portlanders can submit testimony in writing until then to psc@portlandoregon.gov.

The Proposed Draft can be found in the Documents Section of the project website. Meeting minutes, written testimony and related documents will be posted to the PSC website when available.

Next steps

A PSC work session on the West Quadrant Plan is scheduled for Oct. 21, 2014. Staff will brief the commissioners on requested information and be available to answer questions as they discuss the Proposed Draft. The work session is open to the public, but testimony will not be taken. The commission may make a recommendation on the Proposed Draft at the conclusion of the work session, or commissioners may ask for another work session if additional time is needed to make a decision.
