on Up or Out?
What sets Portland apart from other desirable cities particularly in the West is the low urban sprawl. You can drive ~10 minutes from anywhere in Beaverton/Hillsboro and be in the middle of agricultural farm lands. Let's keep it that way, so I vote for up not out.
Growing "up" has its consequences too. We should build more parks for our children to play in. The newly developed park on 53rd+Baseline is a good example. Our public transport system (MAX) is effective, but I would like to see a few express trains with very limited stops connecting Beaverton/Hillsboro to downtown and the airport.
