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 ...


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 ...

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

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 ...

Planning Implications Of Globalization In Portland, Oregon, James W. Coker

Master of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop Projects

It is the purpose of this paper to shed a little light on information that has been gathered on the trends of globalization; to examine those trends as they are occurring within the region within the context of the values and goals of the Portland metropolitan area; and to offer classmates an opportunity for exploring the meaning of these trends and values as they relate to their own particular planning projects.

In short, this entire project is conceived as a point of departure for recognizing the impact of globalization on contemporary planning practice within the Portland metro area. It offers ...
