Real Geographics assissted Cogan Owens Greene with GIS analysis and mapping in support of the West Linn EOA. We quantified vacant and redevelopable land on a parcel-by-parcel basis for selected employment-related zones, then overlaid development constraints such as steep slopes, flood hazards, and environmentally sensitive land to arrive at realistic and defensible numbers.
We assisted Siegel Planning Services of Lake Oswego, OR, in an Oregon Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) Code Assistance effort in the city of Sandy, Oregon. Real Geographics was responsible for reviewing and synthesizing information from a number of sources to effectively communicate proposed improvements to the City of Sandy’s town center identity, in this case through an elimination of some curbcuts along Highway 26 through the center of town to ease traffic conflicts, placemaking, and roadway setback characterization. Oregon’s TGM Code Assistance Program helps local governments promote multi-modal transportation (biking, walking, transit) and efficient land use.
