The City of Wilsonville is hosting a community kick-off event for the Wilsonville Town Center Plan to publicly launch the 18-month-long planning initiative on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 5:30–8:00 p.m., at City Hall, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East, in Wilsonville.
The purpose of the event is to begin hearing from the community their wishes, desires and vision for enhancing the Town Center area to make it even more of a vibrant down-town for Wilsonville. At the kick-off event the City will be asking community members, “How do you want Wilsonville’s Town Center to look, function, and feel 20 years from now?” An informational presentation and family-friendly activities begin at 6 p.m. and light refreshments are being provided. During the initial stages of the process, planners seek to hear what community members currently value and enjoy about Town Center and to provide the public an opportunity to share what changes and improvements are needed in Town Center.
The Plan seeks to provide a community-driven vision for Town Center and strategic actions that establish a clear path forward to advancing the vision. The plan will guide future development in Town Center to create a cohesive, unified district that enhances existing assets in the area and promotes new development and investment. Potential strategies include new projects, programs, partnerships, or policies that foster an attractive and accessible place for visitors and residents of all ages to shop, eat, live, work, learn and play within the area.
The plan’s study area is approximately 100 acres and encompasses the properties north of Wilsonville Road, within and adjacent to Town Center Loop.
Funding for the long-range planning process comes from a Metro Community Planning and Development Grant with matching funds from the City’s Urban Renewal Agency.
