From August 20 – 22, the SE Quadrant Plan project team facilitated the Inner SE Station Area Charrette at St Philip Neri Church off of SE Division St. Over the course of the three days, about 80 attendees generated ideas about the future character of the four new light rail stations at OMSI, Clinton, Rhine and Holgate.
The charrette included two public work sessions, where the project team and consultants worked with the community to develop corridor-wide concepts and explore ideas for each of the four station areas. The preliminary results of those work sessions were presented at an open house on August 22, where participants viewed drawings and offered feedback.
During the work sessions, participants discussed the different roles of each station area and the degree of change that could occur around the different sites:
Other key takeaways from the work sessions included:
The results from the charrette will be presented and discussed at the Station Area Working Group Meeting on September 18. After that meeting, staff will refine the concepts based on feedback. Ideas for the OMSI and Clinton station areas will be forwarded for consideration as part of the SE Quadrant Plan process, which will begin in the fall. Ideas for the Rhine and Holgate station areas will be further developed in the fall based on community input and then forwarded into the City’s Comprehensive Plan Update process.
