The Reimagining Weston planning process fulfilled the capstone workshop project requirement for the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program at Portland State University (PSU). Mountains to Main (M2M) is a group of five graduate students from the MURP program. M2M chose to partner with the city of Weston to create a Community Vision and Downtown Revitalization
Plan during the five-month timeframe from January to May, 2011.
Weston Downton Revitalization Oregon’s Transportation and Growth Management Program supports community efforts to expand transportation choices for people. By linking land use and transportation planning, TGM works in partnership with local governments to create vibrant, livable places in which people can walk, bike, take transit or drive where they want to go.
The purpose of the City of Weston Study of Infill Potential is to help the city improve the use of land and transportation facilities within the city’s urban growth boundary (UGB), in part to reduce or eliminate the need for a UGB expansion. The Draft Infill Plan identifies underutilized or vacant parcels that present opportunities for redevelopment in and near the downtown/Main Street area. The plan also provides guidance for the improvement and management of existing transportation facilities and the design and implementation of future facilities for the next 20 years in a way that will support the infill strategies.
