Li-Ning scores major retail deal Bizjournals.com … US retail partnership for Li-Ning, a Beijing-based manufacturer of athletic footwear and apparel that keeps its US headquarters in the Pearl District. …
We know you share our concern about the livability on our city streets, sidewalks, public transportation and park areas. We have each encountered countless examples of rude, unsavory, and even threatening behaviors walking around downtown Portland. It’s become enough of an issue that many businesses are concerned about their viability, and it increasingly affects Portland’s reputation with locals, tourists, visiting businesses and others.
The Downtown Public Safety Advisory Committee (DPSAC) asked us to work toward solutions. We believe that working together we can effect positive changes to make Portland a safe, comfortable place for everyone who shares our public spaces. It’s time to stand together and make Portland better! What are we doing and how can you help?
Please come to our Portland Civility Summit, a presentation and discussion that will discuss the problem, show potential solutions and allow you to help, if you can.

The West Quadrant Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) held its second meeting on April 1 and discussed important systems, including transportation, parks the Willamette River and green systems. At the third meeting on April 22, the SAC broke out in small discussion groups covering three West Quadrant subareas (the Pearl District, Goose Hollow and South Waterfront).

For more information and updates on the WQP project, please visit the News & Updates page of the CC2035 website.Reader and SurveyTo kick off the West Quadrant Plan, the project team developed the West Quadrant Reader and accompanying online survey. A short newspaper-like document outlining issues, opportunities and ideas for Portland’s West Quadrant, the Reader is a starting point for public conversation about the West Quadrant. It also provides background information to help people give feedback via an online survey.
