TOD Event in North Portland

From the Portland Tribune:

North Portland residents are invited to a Sept. 7 discussion about neighborhood redevelopment and transit.

With a theme of “What is transit-oriented development?” the event is hosted by the Overlook Neighborhood Association and TriMet.

G.B. Arrington, an internationally recognized leader in transit-oriented development, will discuss the Interstate corridor and the goals of redevelopment. Association Chairman Tom Kilbane said residents are excited about the various projects in the area that are soon to begin.

They include Killingsworth Station, a market-rate condominium complex; the Crown Motel redevelopment into affordable rental housing; and Overlook Village, a mixed-use residential development proposal just getting under way.

The event is set for 7 p.m. at the Kaiser Town Hall Ballroom, 3704 N. Interstate Ave.

One response to “TOD Event in North Portland”

  1. The real story here is that City of Portland, Bureau of Planning has still not rezoned the land along Interstate Avenue to accommodate TOD as per the Albina Plan. This process is just beginning when it should have started in 1999 when the alignment was approved.
