South Willamette Update

As you may know, a staff proposal for next steps in planning the South Willamette mixed use commercial area was submitted to the City Council on January 31. You can read it here and view the map below. City staff have been meeting and talking with neighborhood leaders and other interested people about the staff proposal to hear their feedback. A revised staff proposal is due February 28, and will be sent to the interested parties list after it is delivered to the City Council.
The City Council work session on South Willamette Next Steps has been scheduled for March 8th at noon, in Harris Hall (125 East 8th Avenue). At the work session, the Council will hear from staff about comments received on the January 31 proposal, and any changes included in the revised staff proposal. The Council will have the opportunity to discuss the next steps and offer further direction to staff. If you have questions about this process, please let us know! We would like to receive comments on the January 31 proposal by February 23 in order to include a response in our revised proposal, due on the 28th.
