Come give your vision for the neighborhood
Portland, OR. — Community members are invited to an open house to learn about the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans project, give their feedback on the information collected so far and share their ideas about where the project should go from here.
Spanish language interpretation, on-site childcare and light refreshments will be provided free of charge. The open house also features a raffle with door prizes!
Staff have integrated community input with research about the Cully neighborhood to describe existing conditions in the future main street area and for the local street system. With this information, the City and the community can start to understand what it will take to develop a thriving neighborhood main street and a safe, accessible local street system to serve the Cully community.

About the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Project
The Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Project is a one-year effort to increase opportunities to allow more neighborhood-serving commercial development in the heart of Cully, including shops, restaurants and other amenities and services. The project will also help foster safe and attractive routes for residents to walk, roll or bike to local destinations. The local street plan will identify opportunities for future street connections. It will also consider new designs and funding strategies for improving substandard streets based on community priorities for enhancing local circulation. The project will conclude with a report that includes zoning recommendations for the Cully Boulevard Main Street area and a local street plan. Both will be presented to the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission and the Portland City Council at public hearings in Spring 2012 for final action.
