Description

Portland Together is pleased to announce a presentation titled Compatibility Matters: Lessons from around the Country on Compatible Infill. Presenter Nore Winter is the principal of Winter and Company, an urban planning and design firm headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. The event is scheduled for October 17, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Main Event Room (142/144) at the White Stag Block, University of Oregon PDX Campus. Admission is free, but advance registration is recommended.  Registration is being handled by the Architectural Heritage Center.  For more information about the event and Portland Together, see http://www.portlandtogether.org


Mr. Winter will spend about an hour discussing his experiences and that of other experts in helping fast growing cities plan for growth while protecting their resources of existing single family housing.  His comments will provide some new approaches that challenge the current recommendations by the Mayor's Residential Infill Project (RIP) as they relate to moderating the size and scale of new construction in our traditional neighborhoods.

A responder panel consisting of Morgan Tracey and Brandon Spencer-Hartle from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Sarah Cantine from the Residential Infill Project Stakeholder Advisory Committee, and others to be selected shortly will address questions to Nore to explore how his experience may shed light on Portland's current challenges.  The last 30 minutes of the event will be devoted to Q&A from the audience.

Portland Together is a project of United Neighborhoods for Reform and the Portland Coalition for Historic Resources with sponsorship and logistical support from the Architectural Heritage Center and Restore Oregon.  Costs of the event have been underwritten by the sponsoring organizations and generous individual donors concerned about our treasured Portland neighborhoods.

 

This FREE event takes place in the Main Event Room (142/144) of the White Stag Block, University of Oregon Portland Campus, 70 NW Couch Street, Portland​, OR.
