Demographic Assessment

Cascadia Partners performed a demographic assessment of the West Portland Town Center (WPTC) study area to better understand the community and how it has changed over time.

Health Equity Impact Assessment

The analysis focuses on how to operationalize public health research and data to drive decisions in the Southwest Corridor redevelopment process and improve equitable opportunities for healthy living.

Business Inventory and Needs Assessment

Portland State University urban planning students analyzed the business environment, inventoried businesses, surveyed business owners, and researched best practices in equitable business district support.
