OC hosts South End workshop Feb. 27

The city of Oregon City invites all community members to help develop a plan for the future of the South End area.

Residents and businesspeople in South End are encouraged to engage in this important planning effort by participating in a community workshop to establish a vision for the area.

“More than 100 people shared their goals and priorities at the first public meeting on Dec. 13,” said project manager Pete Walter. “This community workshop will build on that feedback to create a vision for South End.”

Over the past four months, city staff, community advisory team members and the project consultant team have heard from more than 500 Oregon City residents through meetings with neighborhood associations and other organizations, the December public meeting, interviews and online surveys.

The city will conduct the community workshop at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at McLoughlin Elementary School, 19230 South End Road.

In this phase of the project, the city and the advisory team hope to translate community values into a vision for the future.

Laurence Qamar of Qamar Architecture and Town Planning will share ideas on how various design concepts can celebrate community values while accommodating new development. Community members will participate in an interactive game to identify the potential future of parks, trails, homes, roads and community gathering areas.
