Vision Questionnaire

Background

The Parkrose-Argay Development Study will explore opportunities to create a complete and connected neighborhood on the 30-acre site at NE 122nd Avenue and NE Shaver Street. This effort, a partnership between the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Metro and the property owners, will result in a concept plan for a walkable, community-oriented development that serves the area.

The study will not result in immediate development. Rather, it will offer a coordinated vision for development that helps meet the goals of the community, property owners and the city. It is intended to serve as a guide for development — if and when the timing is appropriate for such a change.

We’d like to get your feedback on the types of housing, retail and commercial services that you think the neighborhoods need - what should be considered in developing a master plan for the site? We’d also like your thoughts and feedback on transportation issues, site features, layout and design, and opportunities for jobs and community services that might be appropriate for the area and site.

The following pages include some prompting questions for your consideration. All topics are open-ended, so if we missed something that’s important to you, please tell us!
