Free Mobile Workshop: Tour a Potential new “Green Loop” alignment through downtown Portland (Bike Ride)
Sunday, March 29, 2015 from 3:30-5:30pm
@NW Base of the Broadway Bridge
Free and open to the public! Learn about the “Green Loop” concept – an easy and smooth linear open space connection through the Central City district’s parks and open spaces. The “Green Loop” will increase access to the city’s largest employment center, expanding healthy activities and active transportation throughout a 10-mile walking and biking path intended to serve the needs and aspirations of all ages and abilities. It would invite residents, employees, and visitors from the city and from around the world to experience Portland’s Central City in an entirely new way. This connected path would allow people to take a break from work, walk or ride among trees and in beautiful parks, enjoy restaurants and shops, or just breathe fresh air and get some exercise. The concept brings together and links multiple infrastructure projects (completed, under construction, or planned) through the Central City. Tour the potential alignment on the West side of the river – connecting the Broadway Bridge, North and South Park Blocks, Portland State University, and OHSU at South Waterfront. Discuss with city staff and active transportation advocates the potential challenges, opportunities, and solutions at specific stops along the way. Learn about and help inform a Portland State University Masters of Regional Planning Graduate Workshop focused on the southern end of this portion that will recommend place-specific desired public space amenities, facility design ideas, and potential implementation strategies.
