The City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) is gearing up for the West Quadrant Plan process, which will provide detailed planning for Central City areas on the west side of the Willamette River. This effort is part of the broader Central City 2035 project to update the 1988 Central City Plan.
As part of the West Quadrant Plan, BPS is doing early planning work in a few areas, including Goose Hollow. This area was chosen for early work to build off the efforts of the Vision Realization Committee of the Goose Hollow Foothills League, the local neighborhood association. This group has been meeting for over a year and is now teaming up with BPS to jumpstart the Goose Hollow process. Two events will be held in December and will bring together the community and stakeholders to identify issues and develop concepts. This collaborative effort will be looped back into theWest Quadrant Plan process in early 2013.
