North Denver Avenue Streetscape Improvements

Portland, Oregon

BergerABAM supported community and business outreach during the design and construction of streetscape improvements along North Denver Avenue. Part of the City of Portland’s Interstate Urban Renewal Program, this project was a joint venture between the Portland Bureau of Transportation and the Portland Development Commission (PDC). BergerABAM staff acted as public liaison to businesses and community organizations affected by construction, providing advance information about the project and also sharing PDC information about grant and loan opportunities. During extended and disruptive construction, BergerABAM public involvement staff served as the first point of contact to coordinate the resolution of issues and concerns voiced by affected local businesses. BergerABAM also produced collateral materials for a business retention effort, including a coupon booklet, a countertop project information card, and special “Open for business during construction” window and door signs for businesses in the construction zone.
