The Hillside Master Plan for Housing Opportunity is a grant-funded project that will envision the future for this 16-acre public housing community. The planning process will engage residents and community members to develop a vision for a vibrant mixed-use, mixed-income community that preserves and rebuilds existing affordable housing at the site, while creating opportunities for expanded housing choice and type.

Goals for the Master Plan include providing:

  • Up to 400 new affordable housing units
  • Community gathering space
  • Enhanced outdoor recreation areas
  • Other amenities that will serve both Hillside residents and neighbors
  • A mixed-use community with potential new retail and office space

Project Updates/Next Steps

Watch a video about the Hillside Master Plan and Feb. 21 design workshop
Hillside residents, neighbors, and other community members participated in the community design workshop for the master plan February 21. Workshop participants heard a presentation about the planning and design process and worked in groups to create their preferred layout for the Hillside property by placing buildings, parks, parking and other features on a sitemap. Comments and feedback from the workshop addressed:

  • Alternatives for the placement of higher-density housing
  • Placement of parks and a community center
  • Provision of green space throughout the area
  • Connections to the surrounding neighborhood
  • Inclusion of desired services
  • Buffering noise from the railroad tracks
  • Inclusion of sustainability features like green roofs and solar

Next Steps

With input from the design workshop, the project team is creating three alternative design concepts for the Hillside master plan. The team will present the alternatives and take feedback online and at a community open house on May 30. Stakeholder input on the alternatives will help the team continue to refine the master plan.
