Over 40 people attended the first Southwest Corridor Plan Portland Working Group (SWCP-PWG) meeting held in December. The next SWCP-PWG meeting will be Monday, January 6, 2014. Anyone interested is welcome to attend and participate. The Portland working group is a forum to learn about the plan refinement and provide input on high-capacity transit alignment alternatives and associated roadway and active transportation projects.

The group will meet the first Monday of the month at the Multnomah Arts Center through June 2014:

The Southwest Corridor Plan is a comprehensive planning effort to create livable and sustainable communities along the corridor between Portland,
Tigard and Sherwood through integrated community investments in land use and transportation, including potential high capacity transit.

In July 2013, the Southwest Corridor Plan Steering Committee recommended transit alternatives for further study along with roadway, bicycle, pedestrian, parks, trails and natural area projects as part of the Southwest Corridor Shared Investment Strategy.

To move the plan into results, the Southwest Corridor Plan has entered into a refinement phase focusing on the transit aspects of the shared investment strategy while exploring funding strategies and further planning for the recommended roadway, bicycle, pedestrian, parks, trails and natural area projects.

During the refinement phase, project partners will further narrow the high capacity transit design options that came out of the initial phase of the Southwest Corridor Plan and move forward the most promising for further study in a draft environmental impact statement.
