Northwest District Remand adopted by City Council

Changes to zoning and Comprehensive Plan designations in Northwest Plan District approved

On June 17, 2010, the Portland City Council voted to adopt the ordinance changing the zoning and Comprehensive Plan designations in the Northwest Plan District. Because some of the changes will also have to be approved by Metro, the ordinance will not take effect until December 1, pending Metro approval. We expect a hearing before the Metro Council in early August.

City Council also adopted the ordinance requiring a Northwest Master Plan for certain sites in the Northwest Plan District. That ordinance will take effect on July 17, 2010.

For more information about the NW Remand and the NW Plan District, please visit the website at or contact Joan Fredrickson at 503-823-3111.
