Lents Gateway, A. G. Flynn, Carol Herzberg, Lisa Nasshahn, Brett Sheehan Dec 1996

Lents Gateway, A. G. Flynn, Carol Herzberg, Lisa Nasshahn, Brett Sheehan

Master of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop Projects

The Lents Neighborhood of Portland, Oregon aspires to reclaim its identity and renew its economic vitality. Construction of the 1-205 freeway in the mid-1970's physically divided it and disrupted its sense of community. Prompted by the wishes of the community and other concerned parties for greater visibility and a stronger economic center for Lents, the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has asked Lumpetek to study this site and develop recommendations for its best use. We will research physical, environmental and demographic aspects of the parcel and surrounding area, as well as designs which have been implemented on sites' with ...


Exurban Development, Transportation Infrastructure And Access Management, Philip J. Wuest Dec 1996

Exurban Development, Transportation Infrastructure And Access Management, Philip J. Wuest

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

This paper explores the changing role of state highway corridors in an era of continued urban growth and decentralization. Its primary focus is on the impact of exurban development on state highway corridors and on the policy of access management to control or limit those impacts. The role of access management in distributing the benefits and costs of access to public facilities is outlined. As urban areas expand at the fringe, it is important to clarify to what extent the public good of roadways is diminished by direct corridor access by the private sector. This work is timely and relevant ...


Travel And Parking Behavior In The United States, Gerard C. Mildner, James G. Strathman, Martha J. Bianco Dec 1996

Travel And Parking Behavior In The United States, Gerard C. Mildner, James G. Strathman, Martha J. Bianco

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

This paper looks at the connection between the regulation of parking by cities, transit service levels, and travel and parking behavior in the United States. Travel behavior information comes from the 1990 Nationwide Personal Transportation Survey (NPTS) and the Federal Urban Mass Transportation Administration’s 1990 Section 15 Report. Data on the current state of parking programs in place in central business districts of the U.S. is identified through telephone interviews of local officials responsible for parking policies from the twenty cities identified in the NPTS. The travel behavior analyses and the data from the parking officials interviews were ...


The Portland Region: Where City And Suburbs Talk To Each Other ... And Sometimes Agree, Carl Abbott Nov 1996

The Portland Region: Where City And Suburbs Talk To Each Other ... And Sometimes Agree, Carl Abbott

Urban Studies and Planning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Portland, OR, is often cited as an example of successful regional governance and planning. The metropolitan area appears to match many of the precepts of the popular "compact city" model of urban growth and to demonstrate the capacity of local and state government to shape growing metropolitan regions. Given this reputation, it is important to evaluate the relevance of the Portland experience for other communities, distinguishing unique local circumstances form generalizable characteristics. This analysis explores the spatial character of metropolitan Portland in the 1990s, summarizes the politics of regional planning, examines weaknesses in the Portland approach, and offers suggestions for ...

Transit Time Internet Access: Prototype And Progress, Janet Vorvick

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

Transit Time Internet Access Version (TTIA1) is a prototype messaging program which delivers real-time bus schedule information to users of the Internet. Using the World Wide Web and the well developed hypertext markup language (html), TTIA1 allows a bus user to request and receive schedule deviation information about a specific bus at a specific timepoint. TTIA1 is part of a project whose goal is to evaluate the effect on riders behavior and riders level of satisfaction of actual arrival time information.

Eco-Industrial Parks: A Case Study And Analysis Of Economic, Environmental, Technical, And Regulatory Issues, Sheila A. Martin, Keith A. Weitz, Robert A. Cushman, Aarti Sharma, Richard C. Lindrooth, Stephen R. Moran

Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies Publications

Despite a growing interest in and awareness of applications of industrial ecology (IE), such as eco-industrial parks (EIPs), little information is available about the potential economic and environmental benefits of EIPs, the process for successful EIP development, the important regulatory issues surrounding EIPs, or the technologies needed to support them. This report contains the results of a body of research intended to investigate and support the development of EIPs—communities of companies modeled after industrial ecosystems. EIPs can exist within defined boundaries and broader industrial ecosystems in a region. These communities consciously collaborate to enhance their economic performance through improved ...

Neotraditional Design: Resisting The Decentralizing Forces Of New Spatial Technologies, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco Sep 1996

Neotraditional Design: Resisting The Decentralizing Forces Of New Spatial Technologies, Kenneth Dueker, Martha J. Bianco

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

The New Urbanist, or Neotraditional, movement that has characterized urban planning since the beginning of the 1990s has a vision of how people should live, work, and travel in a manner that, planners believe, will be "best" for society and for the environment. At the core of this vision is the notion that a return to the high densities, architectural form, and lifestyle of the period prior to World War II will result in a better society. A question that is ignored by the neotraditional proposals is the extent to which changing technologies might make calls for higher densities obsolete ...

Bus Stop Based Schedule Database For The Transit Time Internet, Jun Qui

Center for Urban Studies Publications and Reports

Advanced Public Transportation Systems (APTS) are a subset of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). Bus Dispatch Systems (BDS) are importatnt components of APTS. Based on the Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) technology, the BDS generates exception reports for buses not adhering to their schedule. A Transit Time Internet Access System (TTIA) is under development. It currently reports bus schedule times and bus arrival times for time points (abbreviate as TP) along routes. The objective of a subsequent version of the TTIA is to provide user with schedule time at the bus stop level. This a report on progress to estimate stop level ...

Thinking About Cities: The Central Tradition In U.S. Urban History, Carl Abbott Sep 1996

Thinking About Cities: The Central Tradition In U.S. Urban History, Carl Abbott

Urban Studies and Planning Faculty Publications and Presentations

Urban history in United States in the last 150 years has been concerned with two central questions. Historians of three generations focused on the process of urbanization and the problem of civic order in the cities. The historians of recent times emphasize on community formation as the determinant of economic growth and its general effect. Earlier scholars discussed the creation of communities and institutions and the correlation between urban and national development. Thus, interaction between city and citizen is a viable theme of urban history.

The Internationalization Of Washington, D.C., Carl Abbott May 1996

The Internationalization Of Washington, D.C., Carl Abbott

Urban Studies and Planning Faculty Publications and Presentations

The globalization of U.S. cities is attracting increasing theoretical and empirical attention. The author analyzes internationally oriented activities in metropolitan Washington, D.C., and demonstrates that the city's international roles are built directly on its historic function as a national city. Focusing on change over time, the author also shows that globalization is a stepwise process: Several key periods of the expansion of international functions were followed by periods of gradual absorption. In comparative context, Washington supports arguments about the separability of international functions and shows the importance of historical development in determining the different ways in which ...

A Plan For Parks And Recreation In Light Rail Station Communities, Mary Anderson, Heather Coleman, Alan Lehto, Kristina Gifford Mckenzie, Deena Platman, Paul Scarlett

Master of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop Projects

This plan proposes new park classifications for THPRD, adding new types of park and recreation facilities appropriate to station communities and adjusting existing classifications to address the needs of a more urban environment. This plan also presents service criteria and design issues that should be considered in siting park and recreation facilities, and elements that should be incorporated into site design. The classifications, service criteria, and design elements were applied to the 170th/Elmonica station area, resulting in a conceptual park and recreation plan for that community, which is also included. Finally, strategies are presented to implement the recommendations contained ...

West Portland Town Center: Developing Partnerships For Planning And Implementation, Matthew Aho, Stevie Greathouse, Kevin Snyder Mar 1996

West Portland Town Center: Developing Partnerships For Planning And Implementation, Matthew Aho, Stevie Greathouse, Kevin Snyder

Master of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop Projects

Metro, the regional planning organization for Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties, designated the area in Southwest Portland known as West Portland as a Town Center in its Region 2040 Preferred Growth Concept. Metro's Town Center definition is open to different levels of interpretation without much guidance as to how the Town Center vision (i.e. increased density, a mix of land uses, a sense of place, and an emphasis on alternative modes of travel) is to be planned for and implemented. Since this designation in 1994, public sector planning efforts have been initiated around and specific to the West ...
