Charrette: King GreenSpace Collaborative

Please note change of location for this meeting: St Andre Bessette Catholic Church (the Downtown Chapel), Hospitality Room, 2nd floor, 601 W. Burnside St, Portland, OR 97209. St Andre's is on the Green and Yellow Max lines. Parking is available either at street meters or at the pay lot at NW 6th & Couch. 

Bring your favorite pen and join us for a design charrette with our partner, the King GreenSpace Collaborative (KGC). We'll be working on improvements for the King School Park and the King Neighborhood Facility in Northeast Portland, using input gathered during a long process of KGC-led community events. KGC's goals include increased green space, reduced water run-off, and improved lighting and safety in the King School Park area. The proposed project includes a nature playground, a running track, and a futsal field.

This is a long-term, community driven project led by neighbors passionate about creating a model for environmental design and outdoor education and engagement. Members of the KGC and the surrounding community will be at the charrette, presenting information about the site and the desired design outcomes.
