Transportation Study Final presentation May 19, 2008

Transportation Group – WHPacific scope
How much land will need to be set aside in order to connect SE 64th Ave. to Division. The work will also address implications for adjacent properties, access to the park, and cost.

Transportation Group – WIKI Question
Questions from WIKI Transportation Site
How much ROW (land) do we need to set aside? Would the alignment follow the property line, which is curved, or something else? What would get included in a street profile, such as planting strip, trees, ADA ramps, bike lanes, parking? Is a full street really needed? Can we meet the “connectivity policy” with other options, such as bike/ped pathway?

Transportation Group - WIKI
Questions from WIKI Transportation Site
Can the street be one way? Can public access be limited to the Lincoln end to reach community gardens, horticultural services, etc., and a maintenance access be limited to the Division end. (technically “connected” but blocked off with a swinging gate?)

Administrative Decision, Administrative Findings and Decision, Minor Land Division LUR 96-00 748 MP

“The plat shall include a future street reserve.
Any future land division of parcel 2 shall include the dedication of SE 64th.” IV.3
There is nothing in the plat or the conditions of approval that require dedication of right-of-way at this time. If Parcel 2 is redeveloped without further division of the land, then dedication of ROW for a road is not required. Only if the property is divided will dedication be required.

Mt. Tabor Master Plan - 2000
Improvements of SE 64th Ave. is noted as a future connection. (As recommended by PDOT) The access sub-committee favored creating access from SE Division Street, if it did not negatively impact adjoining neighbors, and investigation of one-way traffic to solve circulation and parking issues.

Neighborhood Concerns:
Neighbors are concerned that a new street would have a negative impact by re-directing park traffic into the adjacent neighborhoods.
