For the Hollywood Star News
Northeast Broadway is changing with the rest of Portland. Empty space, parking lots and older homes have been reborn as Grant Park Village at 33rd, infill apartment buildings and new commercial spaces. Familiar businesses leave, and new ones take their place. Traffic is busier, parking is tighter, more bikes are rolling through and crossing the streets remains a challenge. Even more change is coming in the years ahead.
Come to a community conversation exploring today’s Northeast Broadway Business District and what the future may hold for area residents and businesses. The Northeast Broadway Business Association is sponsoring an eye-opening evening of opinion from a panel of experts, plus an opportunity to ask questions and offer feedback on your vision for Northeast Broadway. Please put the event on your calendar:
Thanks to a grant from Venture Portland, three top business district experts are examining where Broadway is now and how to strengthen the commercial corridor’s economic competitiveness to create a more focused identity for the area and individual businesses.
Explore how Northeast Broadway stacks up versus Portland’s hottest business districts. Then it’s on to the future: how new businesses, commercial/residential development, visually improved storefronts, a nicer streetscape and transportation improvements can make businesses more successful and Northeast Broadway a more accessible and vital part of our community. Come help shape the future of Northeast Broadway on November 12.
