North PDX Connected | Project Mission
Working in partnership with interested community stakeholders and historically underrepresented groups, PACE Planning aims to create an active transportation plan for N Willamette Blvd that provides a safe and comfortable connection for people walking, biking, and rolling throughout the peninsula. Recommendations promote the equitable distribution of impacts among all North Portlanders.

Engage community members to collect opinions, concerns, hopes, and ideas for the corridor, with additional focus on priority groups who have historically been excluded from planning processes, such as People of Color, youth, and people with low incomes.
Goal 2 | Product
Develop recommendations that improve safety and comfort for people walking, biking, and accessing transit on N Willamette Blvd between the Killingsworth MAX station and the St. Johns Bridge.
Goal 3 | Impact
Assess the potential benefits and burdens caused by active transportation investment and offer recommendations to promote an equitable distribution among all North Portlanders.
