You're invited to share your perspective on priorities and goals for the future of the US Postal Service site and the NW Broadway Corridor.
The Broadway Corridor is a “once in a generation” opportunity to develop a district that delivers affordability, economic development, climate sustainability, social equity and high-quality public open spaces. Before we kick off preparation of a Master Plan for the area in spring 2017, we want to hear from you.
What are your top priorities? How can the process ensure we meet our objectives?
This workshop will provide a forum to hear from inspirational thinkers and engage in a discussion with other civic leaders regarding how the future redevelopment can deliver on the community’s top priorities. Please consider forwarding this invitation to others who may be interested in joining this discussion.
Workshop attendance will be capped at 200 attendees. We encourage you to register early and be prepared to engage in the full session. Child care, dinner and translation services are available with registration.

ABOUT THE BROADWAY CORRIDOR
The Broadway Corridor is a 24-acre site located in the northern end of downtown Portland which includes a 14-acre parcel recently purchased from the US Postal Service and the historic Union Station train depot. When complete, the USPS site alone could include development that would include 4,000 jobs, 2,000 housing units and 80,000 square feet of public space. The value of the construction could be up to $800,000,000.
Please contact Sarah Harpole, PDC Senior Project Manager, with questions.
For those unable to attend the workshop, an online forum will be available after the workshop to provide information about the project and outcomes from the workshop discussions and to seek additional feedback. The PDC is committed to an inclusive planning process and discussion of community benefits that can be delivered by the project. We will be reaching out to people in the next few months to solicit additional input; if you are interested in having us talk with your group, please contact Sarah Harpole.
Additional information about the Broadway Corridor can be found on PDC's website, including the Broadway Corridor Framework Plan, adopted by City Council and the PDC Board in October 2015.
