Our Consulting Team created a Work Plan, which describes the process that Five to Nine Consulting developed to create a framework for revitalizing downtown Oregon City by bringing residents downtown. You can find information about the tasks here on the project page as well as on the Connect page. The study area is between 5th and 15th Streets and McLoughlin Boulevard and Center Streets.
At present, downtown Oregon City is active with civic and commercial uses between the hours of 9AM and 5PM, but it closes up at the end of each business day. Main Street Oregon City, Inc. (MSOC) and the City of Oregon City have identified the reintroduction of residential uses as a potential means of increasing vitality downtown, but they lack a strategy to achieve this goal.
Five to Nine Consulting broke the Live It Up Downtown project into a variety of tasks which provided the information and opinions necessary to identify opportunities and constraints, develop recommendations, and produce a final report. The reports produced for Existing Conditions, Case Studies, Expert & Community Engagement, & Development Feasibility Assessment are available for download from their respective pages.
