More than 100 Portlanders gathered in Metro's Council Chambers on June 29 to learn about and comment on land use and transportation concept alternatives for the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans. A vital part of the Central City and a transportation hub, this area of Portland presents some interesting opportunities and challenges for the community to address.
City of Portland and Oregon Department of Transportation staff were on hand to talk about the various concepts, organized around about future land use patterns and supporting infrastructure, including the local and regional transportation system, open space and green systems. Participants learned about and discussed the choices to be made during the planning process, and responded to surveys that will help inform upcoming decisions by the project's Stakeholder Advisory Committee. This summer and fall the committee will refine and narrow options under consideration and develop a preferred land use and transportation concept for the quadrant. In the coming weeks, we will post an overview of comments received at the open house.
