The Northwest in Motion Plan is now available and ready to send to City Council for adoption! This is the culmination of over two years of data-driven analysis, community outreach, and collaborative problem-solving to develop a near-term implementation plan to improve walking, biking, and public transit in the Northwest District and surrounding area. 

Highlights of the plan include:

  • 5 near-term Neighborhood Greenway upgrade and expansion projects
  • 5 near-term Corridor Improvement projects focused on pedestrian safety and transit reliability
  • 7 longer-term neighborhood greenway and corridor improvement projects
  • 10 ongoing area-wide programs to address other community-identified needs
  • Recommended updates to street classifications to support the plan
  • An implementation and funding strategy clearly laying out a path forward for these projects and programs

Portland City Council will consider a resolution adopting Northwest in Motion at a public hearing at 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 8th. 

To submit written public testimony in advance of the hearing, email cctestimony@portlandoregon.gov.
