Focus Group and Roundtable Reports.
Prosper Portland contracted with Lara Media Services to support public engagement activities for the Broadway Corridor Project with a focus on involvement efforts with disengaged Portland residents who don’t traditionally participate in public meetings and who don’t feel they benefit from large-scale development projects.
