Portland State University
Center for Transportation Studies
Spring 2008 Transportation Seminar Series
Speaker: InSight Visioning and Planning, PSU MURP Workshop Project team
Topic: Imagine 82nd
InSight, a team of graduate students in PSU’s Master of Urban and Regional Planning program, will present their Planning Workshop project entitled “Imagine 82nd.” The project engaged residents, businesses, property owners and students along NE 82nd Avenue in Portland to develop a comprehensive vision for the future of the corridor. Imagine 82nd deals with the portion of 82nd Avenue between the Banfield Expressway and NE Sandy Boulevard, 1.3 miles in length. This particular stretch is home to many retail and service businesses that typify the rest of 82nd Avenue, but it also includes Madison High School, a major corporate headquarters, and a 20-acre vacant brownfield site. At this seminar, InSight will present the vision concepts they developed with the community, with particular emphasis on transportation and land use components.
When: Friday, May 30, 2008, 12:00-1:30pm
