The Southeast Quadrant Plan
In addition to the work on the West Quadrant Plan, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will start the planning and community process for Southeast Quadrant Plan later this spring. The Southeast Quadrant Plan will provide detailed planning for the Central Eastside area of the Central City, as well as close-in southeast station areas on the new Portland-Milwaukie light rail alignment. More details will be available on the project website in March. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Southeast Quadrant Plan and station area work, please contact Troy Doss at (503) 823-5857 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comprehensive Plan Update
How can we make Portland a more prosperous, educated, healthy, equitable and resilient city for all? One of the most effective tools for positive change is the City’s Comprehensive Plan, now more than 30 years old. An updated plan with a focus on equity and will help manage expected population and employment growth, as well as coordinate major public investments in parks, roads, housing, sewers, business districts and more over the next 20 years.
You can help shape this long-range plan for the future of Portland’s communities and neighborhoods by participating in the update of the Comprehensive Plan. You can review the Working Draft Part 1, provide comment online and attend a public workshop.
