Innovation Tour: First Stop Portland

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This study tour will provide an informal tour of the City’s most iconic new neighborhood and ‘Innovative Quadrant,’ the South Waterfront. This new neighborhood offers a rich blend of NPO leadership in everything from affordable housing efforts, to environmental protections, to parks management, to managing aging-in-place facilities. Sustainable infrastructure features such as transit-oriented development, the new Tilikum Crossing Bridge, green streets and green infrastructure is shaping the livability and quality of life in the South Waterfront Innovation Quadrant.


The tour – via streetcar and aerial tram – highlights many of the district’s innovative concepts: landscape design, environmental restoration and green infrastructure as part of TOD; how developers and local agencies are responding to the current economic recession; and transit’s role in the district’s eventual success. The recent commitment of $1 billion for med-tech infrastructure investments will shape this district for decades to come.

Note: This session is off-site and requires pre-registration. The purpose of the Innovation Tours are to take participants on a site visit to immerse them in the community and engage with local nonprofits.  All Summit attendees will participate in the opening keynote and lunch presentation(s).  Innovation Tours are scheduled to take place during the morning and afternoon breakouts or after the conference ends.
