An overview of the November 15 Joint Open House, which featured the draft Rose Quarter District Plan and the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans

The Joint Open House was located in the Memorial ColiseumOn Monday, November 15, nearly 150 Portlanders gathered in the atrium of Memorial Coliseum to learn about and comment on plans for the Rose Quarter, Lloyd District and Lower Albina.

Staff from the Rose Quarter and N/NE Quadrant projects were on hand to talk about the local transportation system, land use patterns, housing affordability, the Willamette River and other important issues. Attendees provided insightful comments on these issues and suggested ways to achieve our communal goals for Central City's N/NE Quadrant.

You can review the information presented at the Open House by browsing the project boards, which were on display in the Coliseum. In the coming weeks, we will post an overview of comments received at the Open House. Until then, feel free to check out the Rose Quarter Development Project's overview of the event and look through some photos from the event below.

If you have comments on the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans, feel free to leave them on this website or contact Stephanie Beckman at 503.823.6042 or stephanie.beckman@portlandoregon.gov

Portland welcomes national experts on urban livability

What makes a good city tick? How are other parts of the country dealing with the challenges of our time? Find out during the Portland Plan - Inspiring Communities Series, featuring six experts on urban livability during the months of December and January. The series opens on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010, with Dr. Robert Ogilvie from Public Health Law and Policy in Oakland, Calif.
 
Presented by the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, City Club of Portland and Portland State University, the Portland Plan - Inspiring Communities Series offers collaborative approaches to city policy-making and planning from national experts and local panelists. The series will highlight how other cities are tackling economic development, community health, education and equity, as well as lessons on how to create complete communities and make the most of our natural systems. The Portland Plan - Inspiring Communities Series can help us think critically about the next steps we should take as a community to become more sustainable, equitable and economically secure.
 
Each event will begin at 7 p.m. with an introduction from Mayor Adams, followed by the keynote address, a discussion with local panelists and questions from the audience. Admission is free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Each event will be broadcast live on Channel 30 and streamed live on PDXPlan.com.

The Portland Plan will be a 25-year strategic plan for the City, and the direction it sets will touch every neighborhood, district and resident of the city as it grows. The plan will help to define priorities, guide investment of public dollars and set the course for Portland for the next quarter of a century.
 
Keynote speakers for the series were chosen for their forward-thinking ideas and innovative work in the fields of education, economic development, equitable communities, environmental design and public health. The series concludes on Jan. 17, 2011.
 
"This is an impressive line up of speakers, and each one of them will help us think about the future of the city with a fresh perspective and new ideas," said Mayor Sam Adams, who will launch Phase Three of the Portland Plan in March 2011. "Even as cities around the world learn from Portland and our leadership on sustainability, Portland stands to learn smart lessons from national experts like Judith Bell, President of PolicyLink, who will speak on how to better serve our city's poorest children with better education, health and social services."
 
Additional sponsors for the series include the Bureau of Environmental Services, Portland Parks & Recreation, Oregon Public Health Institute, The Standard, IBM, Kaiser Permanente, Multnomah County Health Department and Portland Business Alliance.
 
The Portland Plan team will make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities. Please notify us no fewer than five (5) business days prior to the event by phone at 503-823-7700, by the TTY line at 503-823-6868, or by the Oregon Relay Service at 1-800-735-2900.
