“Bold plans are easier to implement than timid plans. Portland’s plans are not bold enough.” – George Crandall
In the next twenty years Portland will experience dramatic change: 260,000 new residents are expected, accompanied by a 40% increase in traffic volumes. And along with the rest of the world, Portland will need to reduce carbon emissions significantly. Portland’s recently adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan and soon-to-be-adopted Central City Plan supposedly address these challenges. Unfortunately, both plans are long on generalizations and short on specifics.
Crandall’s slide presentation will identify the plans’ strengths and weaknesses and suggest alternatives for consideration.
