Hillsdale Strategic Planning Update (Action Plan) Topic Information:

The Hillsdale Neighborhood Association should be developing a yearly Strategic Planning (Action Plan) document to facilitate targeted planning for and tracking the potential 2015-2016 yearly projects to be undertaken by the neighborhood (residence and business owner/operators).

This planning activity began with the 1997 adoption of the Hillsdale Town Center Plan by the City of Portland. There have been several HNA Action Plans since that time, but currently HNA does not have a current version. The hope is that we will get back on track and the membership with the guidance of the Board of Directors will be discussing and assemble this document within the next few months.

Below are some categorical topics begin to guide our thinking process for gathering ideas to be included within the HNA Action Plan document. The Hillsdale Town Center Plan included a listing of the initial Action Topics.

1. Land Use & Zoning (sense of place & balance density) Topics

2. Transportation (transit access & resources) Topics

3. Business Growth & Development (community services) Topics

4. Urban Design (visual defining characteristics & improvements) Topics

5. Community Standards (neighborhood identity) Topics

6. Equity & Diversity Goals (gentrification & fairness) Topics

7. Environment & Recreation (natural features & characteristics) Topics

8. Housing (residential character, livability & density) Topics

9. Schools (educational & life skills training) Topics

10. Parks & Trails (outdoor experiences & pedestrian mobility) Topics

11. Other Strategic Planning Topics

Note: The City of Portland’s Comprehensive Plan, the Mixed Use Zones, and the Residential Infill projects are updating and changing our city, neighborhoods, and the urban environment to better meet the challenges of our time. There will be new modes of transportation along SW Barbur Boulevard, Capitol Highway, Bertha Boulevard, and Beaverton Hillsdale Highway soon. Because of the proximity to major employers such as OHSU and other local businesses, the Hillsdale community agreed that a reasonable increase in housing density was appropriate for the Hillsdale Town Center Plan area.

The goal of the Hillsdale Strategic Planning process is to meet these coming changes in a positive and proactive manner. Thinking and planning in front of the pending changes is better than looking for patchwork retrofits and mitigation strategies after the fact.

All thoughts and input for our Action Plan development topics are welcome. Help us look forward and plan better for our collective future.

TRANSIT THROUGH HILLSDALE!

METRO is the process of creating a High Capacity Transit Corridor from downtown Portland to Tualatin. What will Hillsdale look like when this project is completed? How will it affect livability in our neighborhood? What impact will it have on our local businesses and property values? What do you want Hillsdale to be like?

Metro Government and TriMet are again studying the options – light rail (MAX) or bus rapid transit; where the route will run; where the stops will be located. We need to listen to what is on their mind. You need to take the opportunity to provide your input.

On February 4, 2015, at 7:00 PM the Hillsdale Neighborhood Association will host a discussion on how enhanced transit can serve our community. Our meeting will be at the Watershed Community Room, located at the intersection of Bertha Court and Capitol Highway. Entry to the meeting room is from the causeway between the two buildings.
