The City of Wilsonville is hosting a family-friendly bilingual community kick-off event for the Wilsonville Town Center Plan on Tuesday, Feb. 28, 5:30–8:00 p.m., at City Hall, 29799 SW Town Center Loop East, in Wilsonville.


The event is open to all community members, including among others, youth and Spanish-speaking households with Spanish interpretation services to be provided. The City is also able to provide qualified sign language and other bilingual interpreters if requested at least 48 hours prior to the meeting by contacting Tami Bergeron, Planning Administrative Assistant, at 503-570-1571.


The event includes a variety of activities for people of all ages including children.  Interactive activities are planned for children where a facilitator will ask the younger attendees, “Where is your favorite place in Town Center?” and also to draw a picture of their future vision for the Town Center area. 


Doors open for the event at 5:30 p.m. and at 6:00 pm the evening’s activities begin with an informational presentation in the Council Chambers at City Hall.  Light refreshments are also being provided throughout the event.


For Spanish-speaking households the City is hosting the same group activities in both English and Spanish with the help of a Spanish-speaking interpreter and facilitator. During the group exercises community members are going to be asked to share their vision for the area, along with what the attendees see as assets, issues, challenges and opportunities for the Town Center study  which is approximately 100 acres and encompasses the properties north of Wilsonville Road, within and adjacent to Town Center Loop.


During the initial stages of the 18-month long initiative, planners seek to hear what community members currently value and enjoy about Town Center and the City will provide the public many different ways to share what changes and improvements they feel are needed in Town Center including an on-going Question of the Month, online surveys, and through idea centers that are being installed at City Hall, the Library and the Community Center.


Once a vision and goals are established for the area, the Plan then seeks to identify  strategic actions for the City to take to promote the type of development and investment community members desire to see occur in the area. 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.


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.
