Division Neighborhood Street Plan

The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), in partnership with the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT), will develop the Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan. This planning effort will last roughly one year, from Fall 2013 to Summer 2014. 

Thank you to all who attended our FINAL OPEN HOUSE on June 5!

Open House Report:

We had over 55 attendees. We received many comments and votes by dots, which we are processing and reviewing now. We will post them on the events page as soon as we have them all typed up.

We will continue to accept public comments on the materials shared thus far until June 15. Comments received by then can help inform our proposed draft of the Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan to be shared on the website by the end of June. 


About the Division-Midway Neighborhood Street Plan

The project area is centered on SE Division Street, a designated “Main Street” in the Metro Region 2040 Growth Concept Plan; and extends from SE 112th to SE 148th avenues and reaches roughly one mile north to SE Stark Street and roughly one mile south to SE Holgate Street.


Goals + Objectives

The overall goal is to develop a Neighborhood Street Plan that can better increase street connectivity and multi-modal travel options within the project area. Objectives:

  • Establish a more connected local street and path network

  • Create safer walking and bicycling routes to neighborhood destinations, transit and the regionally designated SE Division Main Street

  • Define the range of options for improving local streets, including use of Portland Street By Street design options.

  • Inform future improvements to be built over-time by property owners, developers and the City.

The Street Plan will define the primary active transportation routes, identify new opportunities for street system connections and apply the City of Portland’s recently adopted set of residential “local street” standards through Street By Street. The Street Plan will also identify implementation methods for introducing new street and pathway connections and options for improving deficient local streets. The Street Plan will recommend amendments to the Transportation System Plan, including revisions to street classifications, master street plan and Transportation System Plan project lists. A set of local street improvement options with rough cost estimates will be developed at a concept level. The Street plan will inform both future public Capital Improvement Projects and private development requirements for dedication and frontage improvements.

How is this project funded?

This project will be partially funded by a grant from the Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) Program, a joint program of the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development.
