Southwest Corridor Community Forum

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

Multnomah Arts Center Auditorium

7688 SW Capitol Highway

Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. (SWNI) is organizing a public forum for decision-makers to hear from SW community members:

  • To learn more about Metro's Southwest Corridor Plan
  • To discuss how high capacity transit could improve access to jobs, services and education in SW Portland
  • To discuss how this could improve overall livability within the Portland section of the Corridor
  • To let elected officials hear our comments, suggestions, reservations, etc. about a high capacity transit project coming to SW Portland.

Panelists include Portland Mayor Charlie Hales, Commissioner Steve Novick, Metro Councilor Bob Stacey, TriMet General Manager Neal McFarlane, and ODOT Region 1 Manager Jason Tell.

All Southwest residents, business and property owners, and any other interested parties, are invited to attend, learn and enter the discussion.

We hope to see you there!

Neighborhoods' call to action

Metro is refining the Southwest Corridor Plan in preparation for the next Draft Environmental Impact Statement phase that begins in July 2014. Neighborhoods have an opportunity to identify top priority projects. The SWNI Transportation Committee recommends that neighborhood associations select their priority “roadway and active transportation” projects by March 31.

Neighborhoods are asked to select three top priority projects from the list below. Email a completed form (attached below) to Marianne Fitzgerald, SWNI President, at, or drop off at the SWNI office, 7688 SW Capitol Highway.
