What sort of vision do you have for the future of Barbur Boulevard? One of the best ways to understand the needs of an area is to walk with people who live and work in the community for a first-hand perspective. The Barbur Concept Plan team wants to hear from Portlanders who live and work in neighborhoods along Barbur Blvd. We invite community members to join us as we walk portions of the Barbur study area in late September.
The walks will help us identify community needs and opportunities, while hearing from participants what their issues and concerns are. We've scheduled two walking routes to cover different parts of the study area and will be leading both walks concurrently on two different days to give people scheduling options:
Thursday, September 22nd
3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday, September 24th
10 a.m. to noon
Groups will gather at the meeting locations noted below for Walk A and Walk B for a brief overview and detailed description of the routes. Walks will last about two hours. Notetakers and photographers will be on hand to record your observations. Bus tickets will be provided to participants.
Walk A - Capitol Hill and Hamilton - view detailed map
Meet near the Safeway on the corner of SW Barbur and SW Capitol Hill Road (TriMet stop #170). Walk and discuss the Burlingame area, then after about 50 minutes, board the bus together to visit the Hamilton area.
Walk B - West Portland and Terwilliger - view detailed map
Meet outside Starbucks on the corner of SW Barbur and SW Capitol Hwy (south), TriMet stop #168. Walk around the West Portland Crossroads area. About 60 minutes into the tour, board the bus together to visit the area around SW Terwilliger.
Please wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather!
Also, note that there are several areas along SW Barbur Blvd and adjoining streets that have no sidewalks. Portions of these routes may not be fully accessible by wheelchair.
