West Portland Town Center Plan is Underway

WPTC Study Area Boundary
WTPC study area boundary
Growth concept
Transportation growth concept

The West Portland Town Center (WPTC) plan covers portions of our Crestwood neighborhood, the Crossroads area around Barbur World Foods and Walgreens, the Barbur Transit Center, and the area leading up toward the Markham and Jackson schools.  The draft growth concept to date (see map) includes high-density housing along SW Barbur, SW Capitol Highway, and both sides of SW Taylors Ferry Road from SW Capitol Highway to somewhere around SW 52nd. SW Taylors Ferry Road currently does not have safe street infrastructure nor stormwater management to support development of this scale. The draft transportation concept (see map) includes a number of helpful improvements, such as the much-needed sidewalks, bike paths and Markham pedestrian/bike bridge over I-5, but there has been no commitment to fund it.  We will keep you updated and let you know of opportunities to provide feedback and advocate for improvements as the plan develops this fall.  In the meantime, you can check out the plan at

Help Fund Sidewalks and Bike Lanes on SW Taylors Ferry Road

Images of the unsafe road

The City of Portland and Metro propose to fund sidewalk and bicycle improvements to SW Taylors Ferry Road between SW Capitol Highway and SW 49th. This is one of 23 projects competing for a Regional Flexible Fund Allocation (RFFA) grant, and not all projects will get funded. We need to show strong support!

2020-06-20 Update: Thank you, everyone, for your huge outpouring of support for sidewalks and bike lanes on SW Taylors Ferry Road. Unfortunately, in January 2020, Metro and the City of Portland did not fund these improvements at this time.  We’ll keep trying!

Project details and comment links are at Metro’s website, [The deadline for submissions has passed]

Use the Map App to learn more about anticipated new housing or job development and where the City may want to invest in new infrastructure, like water, sewer, parks and streets. Your ideas can shape how Portland will grow over the next 20 years. Leave your comments on the maps to inform the City's Comprehensive Plan Update.
