What is the Main Streets on Halsey project?
The Main Streets on Halsey project is a collaborative effort between the Cities of Fairview, Wood Village, and Troutdale to create a shared vision for the Halsey corridor and look at opportunities to make Halsey Street a unique and vibrant place for residents, businesses, and visitors.
Funding for this project comes from the Community Planning and Development Grant from Metro Council to the City of Fairview to perform a corridor analysis and develop an economic development strategic plan along the NE Halsey Street Corridor from NE 207th to the Sandy River.
Why do we need this project?
The mission of this project is to create a clear, documented and shared vision for the Halsey Corridor. The project will act as a local and regional marketing tool to inform current and future residents, businesses, and investors about the adopted shared vision for this key gateway corridor. It will support local and regional initiatives that focus on economic development along this Corridor, East County and its primary natural resource - the Sandy River and access to the Columbia River Gorge.
The vision will essentially answer the following questions:
What kind of place do we want the Corridor to become and how do we get there?
What tools and changes do we need to develop to enable this vision to become reality?
How will each community proceed to develop implementation programs that are both collaborative and distinctive?
