Changes to Barbur Boulevard will the subject of a community forum on May 3, 2012 in southwest Portland. Hosted by City of Portland staff, the public meeting is designed to get input and feedback on where and what kinds of changes along Barbur people would like to see. Staff and consultants will share visualizations of areas along Barbur of current conditions and future alternatives, but we want to hear from the community about what is appropriate and desired.
Participants will also be asked to provide input on desired connections to and from Barbur into the neighborhoods (or institutions like OHSU and PCC) by paths, sidewalks, roads or transit. In addition to providing feedback on the development alternatives, the community forum will be an opportunity to learn more about work done to date on the Barbur Concept Plan, its connection to the larger regional Southwest Corridor Plan, and how you can stay involved and informed.
Staff from the Portland Bureau of Transportation, ODOT and Metro will be on hand to talk about other transportation projects underway in the corridor, such as the I-5 Iowa Viaduct replacement project, pedestrian and bike improvements to SW Kelly, and other projects.
This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of the Barbur corridor. Come and share your ideas for transforming Barbur into a more vibrant, walkable and enjoyable place to work, live and shop.
The City of Portland is working with Metro, ODOT, Trimet and the cities of Tigard, Tualatin, Durham, King City, Sherwood, Beaverton and Lake Oswego to plan for some form of high capacity transit somewhere in the I-5/99W corridor. Light rail on Barbur is just one potential possibility among many being considered as part of the larger Southwest Corridor Plan.
