Portlanders can help shape the future of their community by being a part of the Powell-Division Transit and Development Project. In partnership with Metro and TriMet, the City of Portland is working to improve transit service along this busy mixed use corridor in Portland. The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is also working on refining mixed use zoning in Portland’s centers and corridors.

Please join us at an open house on Tuesday, March 10 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Come to share your feedback or just listen and learn. Either way, we hope to see you there!
