Negotiating Portland's Development Projects with John Russell
Static Preview

Portland, Oregon gets a lot of attention for our strategic and efficient land-use planning and we are known as one of the greenest and most livable cities in the world. We've invested in and revitalized places like the Pearl District and Alberta, and they are highly desirable places to live, shop and eat. Portland is a city that strives for equitable and healthy communities, but are those goals tangible enough to get the work done? What will it take to move forward with projects like the Memorial Coliseum and Centennial Mills, which have been hot topics of discussion for decades? Brian Libby will moderate this program, while John Russell addresses these development issues and provides us with his ideas to keep development moving forward in our city, while keeping Portland's values intact.
