Thanks Brian for helping make this happen.
The presentation had a bit of a science class feel and I was longing for bit more art/design class. I thought Arun provided a strong sense of history and context around Portland planning and past efforts.
I would have loved to hear more about how our planning can move from our cultural history of incrementalism to more space for dynamism and inspiration. Maybe this is too much to ask for at city planning level and more of the creative visions will happen organically like so many areas in town that are revitalizing or gentrifying, depending on your perspective .
It just seems like there are some big opportunities like the River and inner southeast industrial area that are waiting for a bit more big picture inspiration.


Set UGB where it's at, leave it for 75 years, fill in the gaps...

THAT'S how you set a canvas for creativity.
