Finding a Way to the Halprin Sequence Planning Charrette
Please join the Wayfinding Coalition on Wednesday February 22 from 4:00pm - 6:00pm to help plan and design temporary signs that highlight how easy it is to walk to the Portland Open Space Sequence—a historic yet underused series of fountains, plazas, and connecting pathways in the Auditorium District.
Who We Are
Members of the Halprin Landscape Coalition (HLC), the Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA), the South Auditorium Greenways Environs (SAGE) and Portland State University (PSU) are forming this new coalition to conduct a Wayfinding Campaign to increase the number and diversity of people who use the Portland Open Space Sequence. We have recently received funding from Neighbors West Northwest and the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI) to adapt an approach developed by Walk Your City, a civic group based in Raleigh, NC. With support from the Knight Foundation, Walk Your City has created easy to use on-line tools so that other communities can design and produce their own temporary signs.
On Wednesday February 22 we are holding our first public planning meeting to engage community residents and other stakeholders in a “charrette” — a community brainstorming session—to decide where to locate the signs and what they should say. Wear your thinking cap!
Light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP by choosing 'Register' on event page.
Looking forward to see you there!
