City open house focuses on SE Quadrant plans

The city of Portland will host an open house Tuesday, July 8, to discuss plans for the Southeast Quadrant, which will develop an employment center in the Central Eastside Industrial District.

The meeting is from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Oregon Rail Heritage Center, 2250 S.E. Water Ave. It will cover topics ranging from the state of the district to business and ideas relating to the land, river, open space and transportation. City officials say they expect the development to spur potential changes in urban design and zoning.

Staff representing the city's bureau of Planning and Sustainability, the Portland Bureau of Transportation, the Portland Development Commission, Environmental Services and Parks and Recreation will answer questions about the project. Members of the Southeast Quadrant Stakeholder Advisory Committee will share their progress toward draft land-use concepts to clarify goals and strategies for the district.

Snacks and refreshments will be available. Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation volunteers will lead free tours.
