Hello West Portland Town Center Plan followers –
It’s been a while since we shared a project update with you. In fact, it was mid-March just before stay-at-home directives started. Little did we know then what the next six months would bring.
We hope this finds you well, but also want to acknowledge and share our deep concern for community members who are experiencing the painful and stressful impacts of the COVID pandemic, quarantine, economic hardship and social unrest. And our hearts go out to all those who have lost loved ones or who are grappling with ill health this year.
Thank you for your interest and involvement in the West Portland Town Center (WPTC) Plan effort. This type of project is how opportunities to shape a more resilient and inclusive future take root.
Good news is that we just published the WPTC Plan Discussion Draft. Over the past months, while adjusting for COVID reality, the project team has been working on developing a plan that considers the issues and feedback heard during community meetings in 2019, as well as the responses to the March 2020 online open house survey.
