A multi-cultural group gathers to discuss the future of housing, businesses and jobs, health and the cultural life of their community.

“West Portland is a beautiful place that I spend most of my time in because of my community. I would like to see more affordable housing, a food market, and a community center.”

“I want it (West Portland Town Center) to be a real place that naturally draws many people rather than cars to the area, aka, a SW PDX living room like Pioneer Courthouse Square.”

“I’m proud of the growing cultural diversity in our neighborhoods so my son can grow up with greater understanding and appreciation for other cultures and languages.”

“It (West Portland Town Center) needs to become highly walkable, with many things to buy, i.e., produce markets, etc., that cater to neighbors rather than tourists. It needs to become a true urban village.”
