Community members are needed to review new zoning proposals for the Cully Blvd main street area, as well as ideas for improving the local street system for the Cully neighborhood. To get the public's feedback, the City of Portland is hosting a community workshop on Wednesday evening, March 7, at Rigler School. Staff from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Bureau of Transportation will give short presentations and provide opportunities for small group discussions on the proposals throughout the evening.
Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Project
Wednesday, March 7, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Rigler Elementary School
5401 NE Prescott St.
Refreshments, child care and Spanish interpretation will be provided.
This event follows a fall open house where nearly 80 community members provided input to City staff on how the Cully main street area might expand with more opportunities for businesses. The public also provided ideas on ways to improve walking, bicycling and other modes of travel through the neighborhood, and prioritized streets for improvements.
At the March 7 community workshop, project staff will share specific proposals for public feedback on commercial, residential and employment zoning. Staff will incorporate public comments into a report with recommendations, which will be reviewed at two public hearings before final action is taken. The first hearing with public testimony is scheduled for Tuesday evening, May 22, 2012, before the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission (time and location to be determined). The commission will forward their recommendations to the Portland City Council for their final review and action at a hearing with public testimony in July.
