Eastbank Community Church: Making and Healing Community
MetadataShow full item record
The Central Eastbank Waterfront is a unique opportunity to restore a healthy river-based lifestyle to a major city. The district should be river in character, not only location. The new image of Portland is a bustling, riverside creative industrial district where people live, work, and recreate; built at a human scale; with a healthy Willamette riverbank in the foreground and Mount Hood in the background. Portland's Eastbank District is an amazing healthy riverfront with robust water recreation and access, where you can play in the water and catch a salmon on your bike or kayak ride home...all the while being within a stone's throw of the downtown commercial core. The vision will be enabled by new zoning and development policy that makes medium scale mixed-use (industrial/commercial/residential) development financially accessible and required.
