Northwest in Motion will help make Portland’s Northwest District safer and more convenient for walking, biking, and taking public transit. It will develop a list of specific projects that we can build in and around the neighborhood over the next five years.
Thanks to hundreds of community comments and much analysis of the NW District, we now have a list of 20 proposed projects for consideration. Now is the time to weigh in! Participate in the online open house before December 14, 2018 to learn about the proposed street classifications, programmatic improvements and the list of proposed projects. We need your help with prioritizing which projects should come first.
The project area includes the inner Northwest neighborhoods bounded by Hwy 30, I-405, Burnside, and the West Hills. Located on the west side of the Willamette River it is within a mile of downtown Portland. The area is home to some of the oldest and most densely populated portions of the city with a diverse mix of single family homes and apartments, commercial, residential, and industrial uses, as well as numerous regionally important religious and community organizations. The heart of the neighborhood is the Alphabet District, a local and national historic area centered around NW 23rd Avenue, a major shopping and dining destination for the region.
