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.

8:55 p.m. Announcements & Adjournment
