Event description
Design WalkingTour/Community Meeting #2 on Main St. Development + Preservation in Sellwood-Moreland

About this Event

WHAT'S YOUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE OF SELLWOOD-MORELAND MAIN STREETS?

Portland is growing! As our city grows up, what are our goals for the design of our neighborhood main streets and buildings? How can community members have a voice in how and where development happens? Where can we add needed amenities as we grow? Big policy projects at the City are changing how new buildings will be built, how older buildings may be preserved or put at risk of demolition, and how you will get to be involved. Find out how you can influence what is happening both here and citywide.

Sellwood-Moreland Improvement League (SMILE) is partnering with the Portland Main St. Design Initiative (PDX Main Streets), and Qamar + Associates Inc. (Q+A Architecture and Planning) for a series of three community wide discussion forums on design, development and preservation in the midst of growth and change. Please join us at these free events to learn more and share your input!

MORE INFO | SMILE recently unanimously adopted the Division-Hawthorne Main St. Guidelines for application to Sellwood-Moreland core commercial Main Streets. These are voluntary design guidelines and provide helpful community tools for new development. SMILE is working with PDX Main Streets, Q+A Architecture and Forage Design to customize these guidelines for our community and to set our goals for new development proactively. Clarifying the community vision is a key part of the process as well as identifying our desired character and identity, our special buildings and important sites for special planning.

Note, all events are FREE, however we've been raising the funds to work with local experts to assist with this important work so any donations are much appreciated. You can register with a donation or just register for a free ticket. Thank you for signing up in advance and we look forward to seeing you at the events!
