Presented on April 18, 2003 Charles Jordan, Director, Portland Parks and Recreation; Chet Orloff, Director Emeritus, Oregon Historical Society One hundred years have passed since John Charles Olmsted arrived in Portland. His mission was to design the site for the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition and to give the parks commission a plan for the city’s parks system. He completed both jobs admirably. His vision for Portland’s parks, the Olmsted Plan, emphasized a comprehensive and balanced system of individual parks connected by parkways that took advantage of our abundant natural scenery. This bold plan became a legacy upon which the city was built. To mark this centennial celebration, Chet Orloff of the Oregon Historical Society and Charles Jordan of the Portland Parks Bureau join City Club in presenting “The Olmsted Plan and the Status of Portland’s Parks”. Orloff, a former Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan and an adjunct professor of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University, will discuss the vision of John Olmsted as well as the significance of the Lewis and Clark Exposition. As director of the Parks Bureau, Jordan has been a leading advocate for a national movement to create more ‘close to home’ outdoor recreation opportunities. He will reflect on the importance of parks, their role in building communities and the future of Portland’s parks. A century later, the Olmsted Plan is considered a visionary a statement in urban design and park planning. Will this vision provide guidance for the next hundred? Join us!

Portland: Quest for the Livable City is a documentary film and educational outreach project produced as a collaboration of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and Northern Light Productions. Incorporating historic footage of Portland's growth as the self-proclaimed "City that Works," and recent interviews with city leaders and neighborhood residents during the battles over ballot measures on the land-use planning system, this one-hour documentary film chronicles the complex challenges of aspiring to be a more sustainable metropolis with a smaller carbon footprint. As cities across the country today attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, invest in transit, and focus on infill redevelopment as an alternative to car-dependent sprawl, the experience of Portland provides a cautionary tale for planning in the 21st century, involving issues of economic development, gentrification, local food and farming, property rights, and civic participation.

https://www.expedia.com/Yosemite-National-Park.d180672.Destination-Travel-Guides Yosemite National Park sits on the western slopes of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most visitors spend their time in Yosemite Valley, which despite being only 7 miles long and 1 mile wide, packs in more jaw-dropping scenery than just about any other place on Earth. Near the valley entrance stop at Tunnel View, and stand before a panorama that’s reduced generations of visitors to silence. From Tunnel View it’s just a short drive to Bridalveil Fall. Fed by snowmelt, the fall reaches its thundering peak in May. The Yosemite Valley ring road follows the banks of the Merced River, which shifts in character as it thunders from the valley walls, before gently winding across the valley floor. The ring road is dotted with trailheads that lead to 800 miles of hiking trails. The Four Mile Trail climbs the valley’s southern wall to two of Yosemite’s great outlooks, Glacier Point and Washburn Point. Further along the ring road is the trailhead for The Mist Trail, which offers stunning views of Vernal and Nevada Falls. For thousands of years, the Ahwaneechee had villages throughout this valley, but it was at the base of Yosemite Falls where their great chief resided. Take the one-hour hike to the lower falls, or spend the day climbing all the way to the upper falls. To the north of Yosemite Valley, is Tioga Road, one of the USA’s most scenic highways. Fill your lungs with alpine air at Olmsted Point, refresh yourself by the waters of Tenaya Lake, then spend the day at Tuolumne Meadow, the traditional summer hunting grounds of the Ahwaneechee. From its high country to its waterfalls, its towering sequoia groves to its valley meadows, Yosemite is an American story unlike any other.

Presented on March 14, 2008 Neal Peirce; David Bragdon "On March 14, Citistates Group chair Neal Peirce and Metro Council president David Bragdon will discuss the importance of strategic regional planning, especially in developing parks and urban green infrastructure. Peirce will discuss how “citistates” – or metropolitan regions – can position themselves to cope with the demanding environmental, economic and social challenges of the 21st century – and especially how they can harness civic forces to promote livability and sustainability. Bragdon will discuss the metropolitan region’s Connecting Green initiative, designed to open new parks, complete the region’s trail network, and restore thousands of acres of natural areas and park land. Bragdon also will describe how local governments, environmental organizations, business leaders and health providers are forming the Connecting Green Alliance to implement the vision of “creating the best regional park system in the world.” A syndicated columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group and founder and contributing editor of the National Journal, Peirce is a leading expert on the political and economic dynamics of metropolitan regions. Now in his second term as Metro Council president, Bragdon previously worked in private sector transportation and international marketing as well as serving as marine marketing manager at the Port of Portland.

Portland's cherished park system is a safe, clean backyard for its city's residents. Happily, 75% of Portlanders enjoy access to a park or a natural area within a 15 minute walk of their home. The parks provide a variety of amenities, from ball fields and playgrounds, to tennis courts, pathways and picnic areas. Portland's Parks are a community benefit shared by all. . . Or nearly all... In the neighborhoods east of I-205, a different picture emerges. Incorporated into the city in the 1980's, neighborhoods east of I-205 do not have the rich tradition of parks and recreational places we see in other parts of town. Yet, East Portland has experienced extreme population growth. Today, 40% of Portland's families with children live east of I-205. New parks can cost millions , and the city is working toward a bond measure to address these service gaps in a major way. But that could take years. There is a plan afoot that could make a difference right away. It's called "E205." "E205" can make significant, affordable improvements quickly—a picnic table here, a pathway there, a drinking fountain, a place to play... so that Portlanders living east of I-205 can enjoy time outside right away—Beginning this summer!

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) will hold a public celebration as construction begins on the newest city park, The Fields. WHEN: Tuesday, March 6, 3:00-4:15 PM WHERE: NW 10th & Overton The 3.2-acre park will include a children's area, dog park, large (1 acre) lawn, sitting areas, strolling paths, picnic tables, landscaping, and a Portland Loo restroom facility. The Fields is situated within the Hoyt Street Yards portion of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA). Salem's R&R General Contractors, owned and supervised by Jesse Rodriguez, will build the park. The project is scheduled for completion in 2013. Portland Parks Commissioner Nick Fish and PP&R Director Mike Abbaté will speak at the event. Numerous neighbors, community, and civic leaders are expected to attend. "We are excited to build this new urban green space, the third in a sequence of parks in the Pearl District," said Commissioner Fish. "It's a win-win: a new recreation area for families, and much-needed construction jobs for our community." Portland Parks & Recreation wants to recognize the project advisory committee members Keith Thomajin,Patricia Gardner, Lisa Hamilton, Anita Kissee-Wilder, Catherine Levi, Steve Pinger, Linda Salinsky, Jillian Smith, and Steve Young for their efforts in seeing the park through the planning process. Special thanks also go to Tiffany Sweitzer and all area neighbors and stakeholders. PROJECT BACKGROUND This is the third park that was outlined in the Portland River District Park System Urban Design Framework Study (January 2001). The study included planning and design concepts for four parks within the Urban renewal Area (URA) located between NW 10 and 11 Avenues, beginning at NW Johnson. The four parks include Jamison Square (completed 2002), Tanner Springs (completed 2005), The Fields, and a potential Riverfront Park. The Fields is situated within the Hoyt Street Yards portion of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA).

Presented on June 20, 2008 Zari Santner "Vibrant parks contribute to what makes Portland a great place to live, work and play. On June 20, Zari Santner, director of Portland Parks & Recreation, will explore the richness of the city’s parks system and explain how she is addressing the challenges of managing park resources and distributing those resources equally. Portland Parks & Recreation currently manages 10,500 acres, 250 parks and 150 miles of trails. Despite this array, Portland’s lower-income neighborhoods, including Argay, Cully and Centennial, still do not enjoy the same level of recreational resources as other areas. Faced with “doing more with less,” the parks department has established community partnerships and innovative practices to maintain and grow its green infrastructure. These innovations include collaborations between Portland Public Schools and the Boys and Girls Club at the New Columbia facility in North Portland and partnerships with the 80 “friends” groups that operate such attractions as the Leach Botanical Garden and Pittock Mansion. Santner moved to Portland in 1980 and began her work in the public sector with Portland Parks & Recreation’s planning and development department. In 2003, Santner was named the bureau’s first female director."

On the Right Track - Federal Transit Administration 1995 - Video VH-583 - In the 1970's the New York Times described Portland, Oregon as a city in the act of destroying itself. Freeway construction was dividing communities, inner city neighborhoods were deteriorating, air quality standards were violated one day out of three, and businesses were fleeing downtown. In the last few decades, Portland has made a remarkable turnaround to become one of the most livable cities in the country. This video documents the visionary leadership and strong citizen participation that led to a plan to revitalize downtown. The plan included a cap on downtown parking spaces, replacement of a downtown highway with a waterfront park, replacement of a 3-story parking garage with a public square, construction of a transit mall, implementation of a fareless downtown, and the halting of the proposed Mount Hood freeway project and using the money on a light-rail system. Portland continues to use land use, zoning, transportation, transit, and parking decisions as a tool to shape future growth.

Presented on July 31, 1998 Marcy Houle, author/wildlife biologist; Charles Jordan, director, Portland Parks and Recreation; Mike Houck, urban naturalist, Audubon Society of Portland "What a phenomenon. As one of the world's largest city parks, located just five minutes from downtown, Forest Park is a prime example of the natural wonder that makes Portland such a desirable place to live. Even more phenomenal was the foresight, good luck, and sheer determination that made the park a reality fifty years ago. In response to a 1945 City Club report proposing the creation of Forest Park, scores of Oregonians pulled together to make a good idea a great reality. As a result, Forest Park thrives today as a place where wildlife converges and nature finds refuge from the urban jungle. Could the park's visionary founders possibly have planned for the pressures that today's urban growth has placed on it and other greenspaces around our region? While we celebrate the anniversary of the jewel of Portland's park system, it is also time for us to take responsibility for the planning and preservation necessary for Forest Park's continued success. As the Club's 1994 study on Portland's Metropolitan Area Parks states, ""Those in positions of private and public leadership have a duty to promote public parks by example and policy."" This week, we'll look to three such leaders for a celebration of Forest Park's past and for a plan to safeguard its future."

It’s mostly about economic development. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Starting in the late 20th century, modern streetcar proposals started rippling across municipalities in the United States. They’re touted as infrastructure carrying benefits ranging from the social to economic and the environmental. But these projects often make appearances in the news as costly, blunder-filled experiments in public policy. Cities are willing to bet big on this technology for its potential to develop the local economy. But there is some disagreement as to whether the streetcar is driving this progress, or if it is simply the result of planning *around* the streetcar.

Presented on October 13, 1989 Michael C. Houck, urban naturalist, Audubon Society of Portland "Eighty-six years ago, the Olmsted Brothers, landscape advisors to Portland's Park Board, offered a vision of a park system that integrated natural and developed parks and emphasized the importance of an interconnected park system. Expanding on the Olmsted Plan, Lewis Mumford in 1938 and the Columbia Region Association of Governments in the 1970s advocated a comprehensive, bi-state regional open space scheme. Although some of the Olmsted's recommendations have been realized, we have yet to develop a regional perspective in planning for urban natural resources. Initiatives such as Audubon's proposed Metropolitan Wildlife Refuge System, METRO's Regional Natural Areas Study, and the Tualatin River clean-up offer new opportunities to apply old visions. Our speaker today is one of many who shares the conviction that, given development and population growth in the metropolitan area, this is our last chance to retain a connection with our urban natural resources. Houck will emphasize the need to integrate natural resource planning with regional transportation schemes, urban growth boundary decisions and local zoning patterns. Houck also will discuss his proposal for a Metropolitan Wildlife Refuge System, taking the audience on a tour of existing natural areas that are the framework for the system and exploring future open space needs. The establishment of this system, funded by the Fred Meyer Charitable Trust and other local foundations, has been one catalyst in promoting METRO's Regional Natural Areas Inventory."

Get in touch with us via http://clawson.homecomfortdealer.com Portland is one of the biggest cities in Oregeon. Parks and greenspace planning date back to John Charles Olmsted's 1903 Report to the Portland Park Board. In 1995, voters in the Portland metropolitan region passed a regional bond measure to acquire valuable natural areas for fish, wildlife, and people. Ten years later, more than 8,100 acres (33 km2) of ecologically valuable natural areas had been purchased and permanently protected from development. Portland is one of only four cities in the U.S. with extinct volcanoes within its boundaries (along with Pilot Butte in Bend, Oregon, Jackson Volcano in Jackson, Mississippi, and Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii). Mount Tabor Park is known for its scenic views and historic reservoirs. Forest Park is the largest wilderness park within city limits in the United States, covering more than 5,000 acres (2,023 ha). Portland is also home to Mill Ends Park, the world's smallest park (a two-foot-diameter circle, the park's area is only about 0.3 m2). Washington Park is just west of downtown, and is home to the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Japanese Garden, and the International Rose Test Garden. Portland is also home to Lan Su Chinese Garden (formerly the Portland Classical Chinese Garden), an authentic representation of a Suzhou-style walled garden. Tom McCall Waterfront Park runs along the west bank of the Willamette for the length of downtown. The 37-acre (15 ha) park was built in 1974 after Harbor Drive was removed and now hosts large events throughout the year. Portland's downtown features two groups of contiguous city blocks dedicated for park space: the North and South Park Blocks. Tryon Creek State Natural Area is one of three Oregon State Parks in Portland and the most popular; its creek has a run of steelhead. The other two State Parks are Willamette Stone State Heritage Site located in the West Hills and the Government Island State Recreation Area located in the Columbia River near Portland International Airport. Portland's city park system has been proclaimed one of the best in America. In its 2013 ParkScore ranking, The Trust for Public Land reported that Portland had the 7th best park system among the 50 most populous U.S. cities. ParkScore ranks city park systems by a formula that analyzes the city's median park size, park acres as percent of city area, the percent of city residents within a half-mile of a park, spending of park services per resident, and the number of playgrounds per 10,000 residents. The survey revealed that 80% of Portlanders live within a half-mile to a park and over 16% of Portland's city area is parkland.

The initiative is a vehicle to achieve Portlands goal to be a great city for families with children. The Cully-Concordia Community Assessment began as a Schools, Families, Housing pilot project. The assessment explores how to increase and sustain the attractiveness and livability of the Cully-Concordia area for families with school-age children and for the community as a whole. It is intended to result in an action list of locally developed priorities, and the initiation of partnerships to follow through on these priorities. Video produced by John Cárdenas.

Be with us at http://oregontrane.homecomfortdealer.com HVAC (stands for Heating, Vventilation and Air Cconditioning) equipment needs a control system to regulate the operation of a heating and/or air conditioning system. Usually a sensing device is used to compare the actual state (e.g. temperature) with a target state. Then the control system draws a conclusion what action has to be taken (e.g. start the blower). The full set of credits is listed here http://broadcaster.beazil.net/public/credits/youtube/videos/209894 Trane is a world leader in air conditioning systems, services and solutions, we control the comfort of the air for people in homes and many of the world's largest and most famous commercial, industrial and institutional buildings.

After visiting the beautiful Slot Canyons in Utah, we traveled to Zion National Park. We were amazed with size and scale of the park. It reminded us of Yosemite Valley, but in sand instead of granite. We hiked the Narrows, Overlook and Emerald Pools upper and lower.

Presented on July 24, 2009 Erin Flynn, economic development director, Portland Development Commission "With its commitment to sustainability and “green living,” Portland frequently ranks as one of the most livable cities in America. But the high quality of life that brings people to Portland has not automatically translated to economic opportunities or jobs once they’re here. On July 24, Erin Flynn, economic development director for the Portland Development Commission, will explain the city’s five-year plan to grow the economy, create jobs and sustain the quality of life that Portland residents enjoy. She will clarify why it is vital for Portland to maintain – and expand – its position as a leader in the global, green economy. She will also discuss how Portland can maximize the competitive environment for traded-sector companies, drive urban-core innovation and stimulate neighborhood business vitality. Prior to joining the Portland Development Commission in 2007, Erin Flynn served as Vice President of FutureWorks, a Boston-based policy and strategy consulting firm focused on regional economic development."
