Join fellow community members to stroll around The Crossroads in SW Portland and help shape the future of public spaces and streets.

As the West Portland Town Center Plan gets underway, City planners are working with community members to identify and prioritize improvements to the area that will benefit residents, businesses and visitors.

Join us and fellow SW Portlanders to learn and share ideas about desired street improvements, business areas, housing and public spaces in and around The Crossroads (the intersection of I-5, Barbur Boulevard and SW Capital Highway).

Community members will be able to share views on:

  • What areas in your neighborhood are good, bad or just need some attention?
  • Where are the places your kids walk or bike that could be safer?
  • What would give you more commercial or service options closer to home?

What is walking tour?

Walking tours are a way to experience a place outside of a car or bus at a slower pace. Planners can hear from community members about the places they live, work and play. These tours also offer residents a chance to meet their neighbors and exchange ideas and experiences.
