SW Corridor: Locally Preferred Alternative for light rail

Portland City Council SW Corridor Meeting
Rescheduled to November 1, at 2:00 pm Time Certain
City Hall, 1221 SW 4th Ave

Council will consider an ordinance for the Locally Preferred Alternative for light rail on the SW Corridor. 

Crestwood Neighbors:  There's a hearing at Portland City Council that has been rescheduled for November 1, at 2:00 time certain.  It's really important for us to show up (whether you testify or not), make your voice heard.  If you can't attend, you can send an email to City Council as soon as possible so they have time to read it before the meeting. 

Here's the latest information: 

The staff report is online. Written testimony on agenda items may be sent to the Council Clerk at  It's also helpful to cc each member as follows: 

Mayor Ted Wheeler: 503-823-4120

Commissioner Dan Saltzman: (503) 823-4151

Commissioner Nick Fish: (503) 823-3589

Commissioner Amanda Fritz: (503) 823-3008

Commissioner Chloe Eudaly: (503) 823-4682

The City of Tigard has requested a delay.  "The (City of Tigard) public hearing (originally scheduled for October 9th) has been postponed to make sure the light rail is built to complement the redevelopment plans for downtown and the Tigard Triangle. The Preferred Alternative (PA) presents some challenges that the parties are working to sort out."  The City of Portland has rescheduled from October 10th until November 1.  TriMet has scheduled a meeting at Multnomah Arts Center on October 29 (6:00-7:30 pm, Room 30) to discuss Crossroads and the 2 alignments in the vicinity of SW Capitol Highway, SW Taylors Ferry and SW Barbur. 


See the Crestwood testimony that was based on our discussion at the Sept. 12 meeting.  For your personal testimony, it's best to write your comments in your own words.  Here are a few things you might highlight: 

  • There are still a lot of unresolved issues with the alignment and it would be wise to delay your vote until we have more information about the locally preferred alternative. 
  • We want light rail to stay on Barbur (B1, or B2 without the Taylors Ferry refinement). 
  • Pedestrian and bicycle access from the neighborhoods to light rail stations at the Barbur Transit Center and SW 68 are critical to the success of this project. 
  • If your property may be impacted please tell your story.
