The plan area is shown in the map. The area is a natural extension of the City Happy Valley and East Happy Valley. The plan area includes:
All development is planned and designed to create a strong identity and sense of community in Pleasant Valley and North Carver.
Nature is protected, celebrated, and integrated into the community. Stream and habitat corridors are preserved and enhanced to ensure they can provide critical ecological functions. People can experience nature up-close through a network of parks and trails. People can appreciate nature from afar, in everyday situations, though views of rolling hills and forested buttes.
Neighborhoods are more than a collection of housing. Neighborhoods feel and function like villages: welcoming communities that make room for people of all ages, abilities, and life experiences. Within each neighborhood, housing options include family-sized homes, compact cottages, and livable townhomes and apartments where appropriate. Streets and blocks are designed for walking and local shops and services are within walking distance.
People gather in town centers to shop, play, and celebrate as a community. Mixed-use buildings allow people to live in these centers, ensuring that streets are alive with activity both during the day and in the evenings. The centers are destinations because they are built around special places, such as the waterfront of the Clackamas River or the confluence of important streets.
People perceive the communities in the plan area as distinctive places. Homes and buildings are designed to be varied and interesting. Gateways into the area and individual neighborhoods are marked with distinctive public art or monuments. Unique features are designed into corridors and centers to reinforce a sense of place.
Residents have opportunities to live and work in the same community. Local jobs are available to people with a range of backgrounds and skills, and all pay a living wage. Businesses are attracted by unique advantages of locating in the area and reinforce the development of industry clusters.
A robust network of streets and transit routes allow people to move efficiently in, out, and across the area. Streets are designed to both manage traffic flow and encourage walking, biking, and riding transit. Transportation infrastructure is built prior to or concurrent with development.
The plan area is integrated with the regional transportation system, land use patterns, and public facilities network. The plan area is viewed both as a distinct, individual place and a part of a larger system of neighboring cities and rural areas.
The plan can be implemented because it addresses fiscal realities. Service providers—including transportation, sewer, water, stormwater, parks, schools, and parks—can build infrastructure to support development because funding mechanisms are aligned with needs and costs.
