It is important to note that the proposed code concepts are a SEPARATE CONVERSATION from the recent discussion of travel lanes for the South Willamette Street Improvement Plan. The proposed code sets the state for a significantly improved "street-side realm" that is designed to work with either a three-lane or a four-lane configuration on Willamette Street, and does not depend on a particular outcome of the trial restriping or subsequent paving project.
In other words, the proposed code update addresses the LONG-TERM vision for streetside realm in the district. Proposed concepts DO NOT affect the outcome of recent discussions of travel lanes on South Willamette Street ("South Willamette Street Improvement Plan"); again, all proposed standards will work with either a 3-lane or a 4-lane paving configuration. Both projects have been closely coordinated to ensure that this is possible.
