  • What is your relationship to the Lents neighborhood? Choose all that apply (hold down the Ctrl key on your PC or Command on your Mac to select multiple items).
    • I live in Lents
    • I shop/eat in Lents
    • I bike/drive through
  • What activities do you, your family, and/or friends like to do in Lents?

    Walk our dog in the parks, meet friends for a drink or a meal at one of the eateries, grab a bite on the way to the MAX.

  • What kinds of businesses are important to you? What kinds of businesses would you like to have added to the neighborhood?

    Zoiglhaus is great, friends from other neighborhoods love to meet us there, it's so family-friendly. Also love Bella's.

    I'd love to see more practical amenities -- somewhere to buy groceries that isn't a convenience store, or a hardware-type store where I could get household items. I'd also love to see businesses run by people from communities that have traditionally been excluded from these sorts of projects.

  • What kind of open public space do you imagine here? What could it be used for (e.g., Lents International Farmers Market)?

    Yes, the Lents International Farmer's Market! Not sure what I imagine for the time that it's not there, but as more people are living in the town center area, it would be nice to have a pleasant gathering space. One concern is that it would end up like that square by the 7th Ave. MAX that is great for a Farmer's Market a few hours a week but then is strange and empty the rest of the time. I'd be interested to hear what ideas community groups have.

  • What kind of housing do you imagine here? Do you want to see a mix of affordable housing units and market rate units? Do you want to see a mix of units to accommodate families of all sizes?

    Yes and yes. A mix of affordable and market rate, which I understand is best policy and would support a thriving town center with storefront businesses, and units that could accommodate singles, couples, and families. Affordable housing is very important.

  • What are your top priorities for Prosper Portland's investment in this development?

  • If one of your priorities was "Other" please describe it:

    Make choices that strategically support success of the whole Lents Town Center project, with the goal of creating a community in which everyone can thrive.

  • What additional equitable development goals are important to you?

    Ensuring that access to the housing and small business opportunities is not only widely publicized to marginalized communities, but that barriers to their participation are addressed and removed. Process-wise, ensuring that community groups have a voice along the way.
