The future of Downtown, the West End, Goose Hollow, the Pearl, Old Town/Chinatown, South Waterfront and South Downtown/University is before us. And you can testify about the proposed draft of a long-range plan for the Central City’s west side at an upcoming hearing before the Planning and Sustainability Commission.
Over the last year and a half, the West Quadrant Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) worked with interested community members and Bureau of Planning and Sustainability staff to develop the West Quadrant Plan, which includes goals, policies and key directions for neighborhoods from the North Pearl to South Waterfront and from Goose Hollow to the riverfront. This plan will guide future growth and development in the area and incorporates fresh ideas from the community to help make the Central City an even more vibrant place to live, work and play.

Following the public hearing on September 9, the Planning and Sustainability Commission will hold a work session to formulate its recommendation on the West Quadrant Plan on October 21. The project will then go before the Portland City Council for adoption by resolution. Specific recommendations in the West Quadrant Plan will go into effect once the entire Central City 2035 Plan (the update of the 1988 Central City Plan) is complete, expected in 2015.
