The Center for Public Interest Design (CPID) at Portland State University is working on an asset-based community development project in the Tigard Triangle. To begin our community engagement, we organized a collaboration workshop for local service providers. The workshop provided an opportunity for service providers to identify community assets, needs, and challenges, while also creating a collaboration strategy/agreement among attendees for a better-served existing and future community. This forum is intended to be a catalyst for future community engagement.
Thank you for participating in our Service Providers Collaboration Workshop on August 29, 2019. We would like to continue our collaboration by focusing on the topics discussed in the large group session. As a reminder, here are the topics:
Need coordination of efforts and resources
Provide a community center within the Triangle
Activate neighborhood meetings / associations
Address concerns that current population will be displaced
Think about how urban renewal will place more demands on shelters
Set up workgroups to explore diversity
Reach out to businesses and connect them to potential labor force
Please answer the survey questions below by September 12th. Thank you!
