On April 26th 2016, 5:00 PM to 7:45 PM at Midland Library, 805 SE 122nd Ave. There is a drop in time for the Mixed Use Zones project. If you are impacted by the mixed-use zone changes you can drop in to chat with planning staff about proposed zoning changes for centers and corridors. 13th Avenue, Tacoma Street, Milwaukie Avenue, 17th Street and McLoughlin Blvd are the mixed-use corridors in our neighborhood.
The project addresses issues that arise with new more intensive mixed use buildings, such as: massing and design, transitions and step-downs, and ground floor uses. It also addresses other opportunities to realize Comprehensive Plan goals and policies through regulations and incentives in the development process. Drop in to chat with project staff planners about the Mixed Use Zones Project process, and how proposed changes may affect new development in Portland’s neighborhoods. There will be no formal presentation.
