Project Client: Portland Bureau of Transportation
City planning -- Oregon -- Portland, Urban community development -- Oregon -- Portland
Since 2009, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) has aimed to prioritize pedestrians above all other transportation modes. By putting pedestrians first, cities can improve outcomes for communities and transform streets into welcoming public spaces. Pedestrian streets help achieve this goal by reallocating space that was once dedicated to the movement and storage of cars to spaces for people to interact, socialize, and recreate. By developing a typology and an evaluation framework for pedestrian streets, this document attempts to answer the question, what could pedestrian streets look like in Portland’s Central City?
