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 ...

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.

Since this designation in 1994, public sector planning efforts have been initiated around and specific to the West ...
