Land Use Option 2 - River Restoration
- 200' minimum river setback plus 6 acres of riverfront parks (in green).
- Restoration of former wetlands at the west end of Sullivan's Gulch
(where the I-5/I-84 interchange now sits) and where Stark Street meets
the waterfront. (See 1852 map for original wetland locations).
- Daylighting of a former stream that used to empty the swamps
at the north end of the Brooklyn neighborhood. The stream-shown
to the right of OMSI-along with the restored wetlands help create
shallow water wetland habitat for wildlife and resting places for
salmon and other fish species.

view of Mt. Hood from Salmon Street Springs on the west side.
- Mid-rise housing of 4 - 7 stories between the 200'
setback and 1st Avenue (in orange).

and 3rd Avenue and along the enhanced streets (in blue and orange hatching).
- Grocery stores at Hawthorne and 1st and Stark and MLK (in red)
- A corridor of employment (in blue) along the MLK/Grand couplet,
mixing historic buildings with new buildings of up to 12 stories.
- Retail corridors along Hawthorne, Stark, MLK, Grand and
a portion of Water Avenue between the large park and Hawthorne
(strips of red).
- Smart-park garages with ground floor retail at
approximately half mile intervals (in pink).
- Light industrial and manufacturing remain the primary land
use east of 7th Avenue (in gray).
