N/NE Quadrant Open House Recap

A recap of what happened at the N/NE Quadrant sponsored Open House on 2/1/12

public meeting

More than 100 Portlanders gathered at Lloyd Center Mall on February 2, 2012, to learn about and comment on concepts for future development of the N/NE Quadrant, which includes Lower Albina and the Lloyd District. Potential improvements to the I-5 freeway in the area were also presented.

At the open house, City of Portland and Oregon Department of Transportation staff were on hand to discuss and gather comments on:

  • The Proposed Quadrant Concept, covering the future direction for land use, street and development character, open space and green systems.

  • Potential safety and operational improvements to the I-5 freeway and local street system in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange.  

Comments from participants will help inform upcoming decisions by the project's Stakeholder Advisory Committee as they finalize the quadrant and freeway concept diagrams and begin to draft more detailed plans. A summary of comments received at the open house will be available soon.
