Meeting Summary – 2/9/10February 9, 2010
12:30pm – Milwaukie Light Rail, OMSI to PSU segment
We reviewed the plans for this segment of the route and its stations, with discussion around how Light Rail, Streetcar, buses and bikes would interact on both sides of the river.
1:40pm – Portland Plan
Staff overviewed the periodic review process and how it fits into the State legal and administrative process.
Citizen testimony began at 1:58pm and we got a point-counterpoint on the value and usage of the Natural Resources Inventory. There was also testimony on CS zoning and how it affects the character of main streets and another individual spoke to the requirements for infill housing development.
The Commission then had a good discussion about different housing types and where they may be most appropriately located. Background data on this may be found in the Housing Supply report, and I may post on this in the future.
