Visioning our Main Street Together: Oct. 23, 24, 25 & 27

JUST ONE WEEK AWAY!

Thursday, October 23rd is the date of the first big public session of the “Woodstock Design Project,” a.k.a. Woodstock Charrette, starting at 6:30pm and going til about 9:00.

An Open House on Saturday, October 25th from 4:00 to 6:00pm, will give people a chance to check on the progress of the National Charrette Institute’s 5-person design team in translating neighborhood ideas into visuals, and give further input and feedback. The public may drop by the studio anytime from 10:00am to 4:00pm on October 24th, 25th and 27th.

We encourage everyone to turn out for the big public meeting at the conclusion of the four-day intensive, scheduled for 6:30 to 9:00pm on Monday, October 27th, where the NCI team will present the “products” (i.e., drawings, maps, reports) generated through the community vision/design process. 

Location of all charrette events is All Saints Episcopal Church, located on the north side of Woodstock Blvd. between SE 40th and SE 41st Aves.

PLEASE JOIN US!

Come together with other Woodstockians — i.e., people who live and/or work in or near Woodstock, or own property here, and have an interest in our business district — to think about, discuss, consider and express your own unique vision for Woodstock’s main street, and its place within the Woodstock neighborhood and greater Portland. We keep hearing the drumbeat: “Density, Density, Density” and city planners talk about zoning for higher density along transit corridors. Is Woodstock such a corridor? If so, how can we, as a community, plan for that growth and help shape it?

It’s really important to get as many local residents involved in the charrette conversations as possible. Please join us! And please help us spread the word about the Woodstock Charrette by telling your neighbors…
