A summary of comments from the Open House on 11/15, co-hosted by the N/NE Quadrant Project team and the Portland Development Commission
The November 15 Open House was the first large public outreach event for the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans (N/NE Quadrant Project). The co-hosted event allowed the community to provide input on both the draft Rose Quarter Development Plan and the N/NE Quadrant Project.
If you were there, you were one of 125 community members who showed up to contribute over 150 comments and ideas. Most of your comments were related to transportation issues, followed by comments about Land Use and Urban Design and then Riverfront.
Your comments showed a clear interest in making the N/NE Quadrant of Portland's Central City more pedestrian and bicyclist friendly and making public transit (bus, MAX, streetcar) more accessible. Many of your comments also included suggestions to lower speed limits in the portion of the I-5 freeway that passes through the N/NE Quadrant. Your comments also show sincere concerns about the safety around I-5 on/off ramps that intersect with pedestrian, bicycle and local auto traffic.
Many of your comments reflected a community desire for more walkable neighborhoods, with smaller buildings used as residences and businesses (mixed-use).
Your comments about the Riverfront in the N/NE Quadrant highlighted an interest in better access to the river and in keeping/reusing the grain silos at the foot of the Broadway Bridge as an historical focal point for the area.
Additionally, the Oregon Department of Transportation asked you to rate the issues that "are the most important to address as we consider improvements to the I-5 Freeway..." The topic with the most votes was "pedestrian and bike travel improvement," which received 31% of the votes. The topic with the least number of votes was "freeway congestion" (3%).
