Central City 2035 (CC2035) will complete its twelve-part symposium series with Historic Resources as the final integrated theme under discussion on June 17. The symposiums have featured a wide spectrum of participants sharing valuable ideas and perspectives on themes such as mobility, housing and community development and economic vitality. CC2035 is an update to 1988 Central City Plan, and will guide the future of the Central City for the next 25 years. The results of the discussions provide direction for CC2035 in developing draft goals and an overall Draft Concept Plan, which is expected to be completed in late summer or early fall. Next steps are gathering all of the results of the past few months and setting goals and a direction for CC2035.
N/NE Quadrant Open House on June 29
Meanwhile, the N/NE Quadrant and I-5 Broadway/Weidler Plans have been gathering ideas from numerous public events and meetings, and project staff have now developed land use and transportation concepts to illustrate how the area could develop over time. These will be featured at an open house on June 29.
The intent of the open house is to share the current work being done and allow for any public input or general feedback. The open house will be held on June 29, from 4:30pm-6:30pm, at the Metro Council Chambers. This project is a joint effort between BPS, PBOT and ODOT.
Some of these concepts involve proposals for open spaces, green systems, options that emphasize the growth of different uses (residential, employment and entertainment, or a residential/employment blend), and transportation system improvements for the quadrant, as well as specific options for the I-5 Broadway/Weidler Interchange area.
This project seeks to realize the potential of the N/NE Quadrant area, which includes Lower Albina and the Lloyd District. There is tremendous capacity for dynamic and vibrant growth within these areas, and a number of options are on the table for guiding the future development of the N/NE Quadrant of the Central City.
