Designing to Support Local Businesses and Neighborhoods
Photos and Story by Gina Whitehill-Baziuk
PCC Cascade Campus recently contracted with Michele Reeves, a local Community Redevelopment expert to help better understand and plan for campus improvements and potential expansion of classrooms and educational programs. Michele, formerly a Portland commercial broker, is advising PCC’s design team on ways to successfully integrate Cascade Campus with the Humboldt and Piedmont neighborhoods and the Killingsworth business corridor.
Michele is well-known for her efforts along Portland’s east side commercial corridors, including the revitalization of North Mississippi Avenue and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. In working with the design team, she is championing PCC’s efforts to increase cooperation and outreach with local business and property owners and support the revitalization of the Killingsworth commercial corridor.
