Better Broadway Project Trys Out Street Changes

The Better Broadway demonstration project has been organized by advocacy group Better Block PDX in conjunction with area neighborhood and business groups, including the NE Broadway Business Association (NEBBA), The Portland Bureau of Transportation and PSU engineering and planning students.

The project runs May 9-15 on NE Broadway from 24th to 7th Aves. The street has been redesigned to promote more “people-focused” pedestrian traffic and business activity, slower vehicle speeds, creation of safer pedestrian and bicycle access, new approaches to transit stops, and testing how the curb zone can be utilized in creative ways.

Temporarily for one week, NE Broadway has been narrowed to two traffic lanes, several crosswalks have been added, the bike lane has been improved, and space has been opened near the curb to allow seating, games, activities and retail promotions. Traffic volume and speed data will be measured as well.

NEBBA Focuses on The City's Future Transporation Projects as We Prepare for the Next 20 Years

The Northeast Broadway Business Association is committed to supporting a vibrant business district and a strong local economy. To assist in advocating on behalf of district businesses, NEBBA solicits input on various land use and transportation topics via member meetings, direct emails,  expert advice, and many one-on-one conversations. NEBBA takes district-wide feedback, examines how projects provide positive benefits for businesses, while minimizing negative impacts, and then advocates for businesses' benefit.

NEBBA continuously explores the impact of new mixed-use development, zoning guidelines, and parking and transportation changes with a eye to the business district’s customer access, parking needs, and leasing rates.  
We support careful study of transportation infrastructure and growth, examining the impact on businesses prior to signing off on any project or plan.

As part of this process, NEBBA proposed re-forming a group we created three years ago to work on the NE Quadrant Plan. The NE Broadway/Weidler Alliance (BWA) partners include area business districts, neighborhoods, business groups and other major stakeholders who discuss common goals for the NE Broadway/Weidler Corridor and examine ways to leverage investment in needed improvements. The BWA has been meeting since last fall and is co-chaired by NEBBA and the Sullivan's Gulch Neighborhood Association.

This winter and spring, the BWA and NEBBA have been focused on updates to the City of Portland's Transportation System Plan that will guide projects for the next 20 years. Both groups' top priority is a proposed NE Broadway/Weidler streetscape and multi-modal improvement project that will transform our business district: improving customer and neighborhood access, smart integration of transportation modes, and a better overall street-level environment. The BWA and NEBBA are pushing the City to undertake an updated plan and expedite construction.

Both NEBBA and BWA submitted letters to the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission and the Portland Bureau of Transportation commenting on specific projects that affect the NE Broadway Business District and the greater NE Broadway/Weidler Corridor. Links to those are below. A final list of proposed projects is expected in May and will be referred to the Planning and Sustainability Commission and then the Portland City Council.

Barre Studios Bring a New Fitness Choice to NE Broadway

Industrial Barre

The Industrial Barre is a locally-owned fitness studio created and run by Sarah Zemp and Misti Andersen that uses a ballet barre for balance and stability. Clients are guided through an intense full body workout that targets the legs, glutes, chest, back, arms and abs until they are fatigued and then focuses on stretching to shape muscles and bring them closer to the bone, creating a “dancer’s physique”. All exercises are low impact, easy on the joints and help improve posture and have been rigorously studied and approved by certified physical therapists to elicit the most dramatic musculature toning effect without bulkiness and with the lowest direct impact.
Industrial Barre welcomes all levels of both male and female patrons over the age of 14. First visits are complimentary. Classes are one hour long and can be purchased and scheduled online or in the studio.
Industrial Barre was designed to be more than a fitness studio. It was built around a sustainable relationship with the environment using over 90% reclaimed materials in the construction. With an inviting living room, spa-like bathrooms, and highly trained instructors and staff that are all available to facilitate a superlative client experience, you will also find that Industrial Barre is an authentic and utilitarian fitness approach celebrating the healthy individual.
Also, Industrial Barre has partnered with Portland Juice Company and now offers fresh juice daily! Stop in to say “Hello!’, get a juice and a tour, and sign up for class!
