Portland Working Group
Engaging Portland communities in project discussions
The Portland Working Group (PWG) met from 2009 to 2011 to help ensure the
community’s perspectives were incorporated into design and planning for the
extension of the MAX Yellow light rail line from the Expo Center to Vancouver.
PWG members represented residents and business owners from Hayden Island and
North Portland. The group made recommendations related to design, mobility and
access, transit planning, business and community outreach and impacts on
businesses and neighborhoods for the Oregon transit segment.
Capturing community values to guide future
PWG hosted a variety of open houses and workshops to engage the broader community on a variety of topics, including station and Hayden Island interchange design. In January 2010, PWG completed the
Hayden Island Light Rail Station Conceptual Design Report. Principles within the report capture the community’s values and will help guide future project decisions.
