Town Center Future Development Rendering

In 2019, the City of Wilsonville adopted the Town Center Plan establishing a vision for a vibrant, walkable community hub that inspires people to come together and socialize, shop, live, and work.

To achieve the plan's goals and broader vision, the City is developing a streetscape plan that establishes design guidelines for sidewalks and streets, including items such as street furniture, lighting fixtures, landscaping, public art placement and pavement design. The completed plan creates a distinct look and feel for Town Center streets. Over time, the new streetscape will be critical in fostering a strong sense of place for residents, employees and visitors.

With new landscaping features, plaza spaces and bike/pedestrian infrastructure planned, project leaders started by asking the community for input on which elements to prioritize and what design aesthetic is preferred for the final Streetscape Plan. What emerged were three distinct alternatives, which have matured into unique streetscape design concepts ready for more public input. Input from the public forums, Planning Commission, and City Council will result in the selection of a single design concept, which will form the basis of the Town Center Streetscape Plan.

On Wednesday September 8, 2021, beginning at 6:00 PM, the Wilsonville Planning Commission will hold a public hearing regarding the Town Center Streetscape Plan (Case File # LP21-0002). The Planning Commission will consider whether to recommend adoption of the Town Center Streetscape Plan to the City Council. The Wilsonville City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the proposal on October 4, 2021 at 7:00 PM after which it may make the final decision.

    After the February Public Forums and supplementary survey on Let's Talk, Wilsonville! concluded, the River Environment concept received the most votes with Technological Innovation in second place. Many of those who voted for River Environment ranked Technological Innovation as their second choice. Several members of the public noted during both the Forum and survey that while the River Environment concept was their favorite, the linear routes and sidewalks in the Technological Innovation concept provided more direct and easy to navigate connections through Town Center. Based on this feedback, the project team recommended a blended streetscape concept that would be predominantly incorporate design elements from the River Environment concept, with specific elements of Technological Innovation that resonated with the public integrated into the design.

    Planning Commission supported this direction at the March 10, 2021 work session as did City Council during the April 5, 2021 work session. The rendering above was presented to City Council to provide a more detailed depiction of what the final streetscape concept may look like. The project team will continue to refine this concept and will return to Planning Commission in May and Council in June to present the draft Streetscape Plan
