ABOUT THE PROJECT

 

The Sellwood-Moreland Main Streets Design Initiative is a community project to create a vision and design guidelines that can better shape anticipated development along our core main street areas with greater sensitivity to local character.


Main Street Design Guidelines for Sellwood-Moreland

SMILE recently adopted the Division-Hawthorne Design Guidelines for application to Sellwood-Moreland's core commercial Main Streets. These are voluntary design guidelines and provide helpful community tools for new development. SMILE is working now with PDX Main Streets Design Initiative, Qamar Architecture + Town Planning, and Forage Design + Planning to customize these guidelines for Sellwood-Mooreland and to proactively set goals for new development. 

Where do the Design Guidelines apply?

The focus of the guidelines are core main street areas with special character along SE Milwaulkie Avenue, SE 13th Avenue, Tacoma Street, and SE Bybee Boulevard.

Who’s involved and how? Working with PDX Main Streets, SMILE, the business alliance, the community and a design consulting team, we are engaging the community to identify our design priorities and goals. Clarifying the community vision is a key part in the process, as well as identifying our desired character and identity, our special buildings and important sites for special planning consideration.

Get Involved! Join the conversation at one of our community workshops, volunteer, donate, or contact us to learn more.
