2011-12 YEAR IN REVIEW

2011-12

Dear supporters and friends of Pioneer Courthouse Square,


Today, Pioneer Courthouse Square is at a key point in its nearly 30-year history. After thousands of free public programs, millions of visitors and tireless community volunteer hours, the Board of Trustees of Pioneer Courthouse Square is looking to pave the way to secure our Citys Living Room for the next generation of Portlanders. This ambitious goal would not be attainable without the thriving partnership between Pioneer Courthouse Squares Board of Trustees and the City of Portland. Together, since the Squares inception, we have successfully managed this public asset, elevating it to serve as one of the most award-winning Public Squares in the United States. In partnership, we look forward to meeting the challenges of basic repairs and capital improvements now presented by an aging Square that has been well-loved and highly utilized by its citizens. Amassing the public and private resources to bring about this revitalization will be our organizations focus over the next few years. To this end, we will need everyones help. Phil Kalberer President

Pioneer Courthouse Square opened as a unique public Park on April 6, 1984, born of Portlanders determination to rejuvenate the heart of their City. The Park was named after its neighbor to the east, the Federal Pioneer Courthouse, and was designed to be the focal point of Downtown. The Park resides at the center of the regional transit system anchoring the central business district with its shopping, office and service sectors which act as attractors for the entire City, State and region.
