The purpose of the pre-planning phase was to reach agreement on what topics should be addressed and what the process should be to guide the planning effort. A Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) was formed to help guide PDOT and the design team in the pre-planning effort and they continued their role in the planning phase. SAC members included representatives from the affected neighborhoods, business associations, major planning efforts, business and property owners, social service agencies, and the community. Input was also gathered at a community workshop in May 2000. A scope of work was developed outlining the tasks and activities to be completed to produce a final plan.
