On October 12, Bureau of Planning and Sustainability staff and our consultant, Worley Parsons, gave an overview of the West Hayden Island Concept Plan alternatives at a joint briefing to the Portland City Council and the Port Commission. Both alternatives (A and B) accommodate no more than 300 acres of marine terminal development and no fewer than 500 acres of protected open space. They include variations on the terminal operations, open space enhancement, transportation network and recreational opportunities. The City and Port Commissioners were engaged in the presentation, asking questions and having a lively discussion.
You can also view a summary of the presentation and take an online survey at our Virtual Open House.
Comments on the WHI Concept Plan alternatives will be accepted until Nov. 7, 2011.
