West Quadrant: Project Up and Running!

The West Quadrant Plan team held three major public events in March. The West Quadrant Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) held its first meeting on March 11 and set the foundation for their work, identifying issues and directions for the West Quadrant. Upcoming meetings in April and May will continue these discussions at the system wide and neighborhood scale. A planning forum and charrette for the Old Town/Chinatown neighborhood, held on two consecutive Fridays in the White Stag Building, attracted full houses. Staff is working on a summary of key ideas and concepts from the events which should be available in early May. Similar efforts for Goose Hollow are helping staff to get a running start at the quadrant planning process. Feedback has been enthusiastic and informative.

To kick off the West Quadrant Plan, the project team developed the West Quadrant Reader and an accompanying online survey. A short newspaper-like document outlining issues, opportunities and ideas for Portland’s West Quadrant, the Reader is a starting point for the public conversation about the West Quadrant and will help people give feedback via the online survey. The West Quadrant Issues and Opportunities Survey seeks community input on topics such as housing, transportation and neighborhood services. It is available online through May 10, 2013.
