Update on the Hollywood HUB Project (7: 25-7: 30)

BAC member Iain MacKenzie will provide a brief update on TriMet’s Hollywood HUB project. The project will be submitted to the Design Commission for a request for a design opinion on December 16.

82nd Avenue Jurisdiction Transfer Process (7:30 a.m. – 8:20 a.m.)

Last summer, the state legislature allocated $ 80 million to fund the U.S. Salvage Plan for the city of Portland to make critical safety and maintenance upgrades on 82nd Avenue and trigger a transfer from the state roadway to the city. City council is expected to review the devolution agreement which includes additional city and state financial commitments in early 2022. Kristin Hull, director of the planning division of PBOT and Julia Reed, senior planner for PBOT, will discuss the transfer of competence, the timetable and the public process. She will seek the committee’s advice on how best to engage historically under-represented groups. For background, see the existing transportation plans for 82nd Avenue: 82nd Avenue Plan: Planning for a Future Civic Corridor (PBOT) and 82nd Avenue Implementation Plan (ODOT).
