Comments Off on Survey About Square in Con-way Masterplan
Please take a moment to complete a short online survey about the square that will be built in the Con-way Masterplan area.
As a bit of background, in 2009 and 2010, NWDA led a community-driven planning process that resulted in an urban design concept for the Slabtown neighborhood in Northwest Portland. Based on the results of an online survey and five workshops, the neighborhood’s top priorities were defined as parks, squares, and open spaces; pedestrian- and bike-friendly streets; and creating a historically significant iconic focal point. In 2011 and 2012, to advance the goals and priorities of the neighborhood, NWDA participated in the development of a masterplan for a 17-acre parcel of land owned by Con-way.
The masterplan was approved in August 2012. Roughly 25% of the masterplan area is dedicated to a park, square, and pedestrian walkways. Portland Parks & Recreation will lead a pubic process to design and develop the public park. The square will be part of a private development site, which will be located on the western half of the block between NW 20th and NW 21st and NW Pettygrove and NW Quimby. As part of the masterplan agreement, the public will have an enhanced role in the design of the square once a developer is identified.
In anticipation of this design process, Don Genasci, an NWDA Board member and architecture professor at the University of Oregon, has arranged to have roughly twenty students design visions of the Slabtown square as a part of their course work. NWDA is excited to review a wide variety of creative student ideas and designs to help inform the future design of the square.
We would like to supplement the formal masterplan guidelines and design standards with your opinions and ideas about what would make a great neighborhood square.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
