Lower SE Rising Area Plan

BDNA Note: Please take the survey linked at the bottom before September 6th, 2021!

From Portland Bureau of Transportation:

BPS and PBOT launch latest planning effort: Lower Southeast Rising Area Plan

City bureaus to address the historic lack of infrastructure investment in this area of Southeast and East Portland; seek community input to guide healthy community development.

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) and Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) are collaborating with community members to assess land use and transportation issues for Brentwood-Darlington and portions of the Lents, Ardenwald-Johnson Creek, Mt Scott-Arleta, and Woodstock neighborhoods. This new planning effort is called the Lower Southeast Rising Area Plan.

The bureaus recognize the historic lack of infrastructure investment in this area of East Portland. So they are seeking community input to guide healthy community development for the area, which has many unimproved roads, sidewalk gaps, limited street networks, poor transit service, and few neighborhood commercial amenities.

BDNA is posting this survey questionnaire on several social media sites. Please complete the questionnaire only once, so we don’t inflate the number of residents reporting nuisance-properties. We will post our results after four weeks of data collection. Thank you for helping us document this problem.

This is a project of the BDNA Land Use and Transportation Committee.

Portland Community Insights Survey

Over the past several months, the City Budget Office has been working with representatives throughout the City of Portland on a new citywide initiative called the Portland Community Insights Survey. This survey is a redesign of the Community Survey conducted by the Auditor’s Office until 2016 and is meant to provide City Bureaus and City Council with actionable insights to help inform budgeting and policy decisions.

This survey will give us the opportunity to hear from people who rely on us each day to make sure Portland is a great place to live. It includes questions on policy and budget priorities, satisfaction with services, ideas for improvement, and service usage patterns. Insights from these responses will help us build a stronger, more equitable city.

Please share the survey link as widely as possible and encourage those in your respective networks to make their voices heard: www.research.net/r/PDXspeaks

  • The survey will remain open through May 28th.
  • In addition to the online survey, we have a team of student and community leaders conducting in-person canvassing of the survey in underrepresented communities. If you see them in bright blue Community Data Fellows t-shirts – please stop for a chat!
  • The survey is available online in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, and Russian.
  • The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
  • The survey is opt-in and available to anyone who lives, works, and/or plays in the City of Portland.
