Jade District Vision Planning
The Jade District is a vibrant southeast Portland community centered along the intersection of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Division Street. Within its .91 square mile boundary is a highly diverse neighborhood of more than 400 businesses with nearly half of the residents being people of color.
The Jade Visioning project engaged the diversity of the district directly in planning community-desired improvements through ethnic and racial specific outreach. Six workshops took place between April and June 2014 resulting in a community-defined vision for the most critical improvements helping leverage the public monies available to the Jade District staff.
