Goals and Policies
Comprehensive Plan Goals and Policies is the current adopted land use plan for the City of Portland. This plan guides the future growth and development of the city. The state definition of a "comprehensive plan" is: a generalized, coordinated land use map and policy statement of the governing body of a local government that interrelates all functional and natural systems and activities relating to the use of lands, including but not limited to sewer and water systems, transportation systems, educational facilities, recreational facilities, and natural resources and air and water quality management programs.
Portland's Comprehensive Plan includes a set of goals, policies, and objectives that apply to the entire city. Similar goals, policies, and objectives in neighborhood and community plans that apply only parts of the city are also part of the Comprehensive Plan. The plan also includes a list of significant public works projects; and a set of mapped features. These features include land use designations, street classifications, the city limits, and the urban service boundary. The documents and maps comprising Portland's Comprehensive Plan have never been printed together in a single volume.
Revisions for the November 2011 publication include the Transportation System Plan (TSP) update, the Hayden Island Plan (addressing the east side of the island), readoption of the Northwest District Plan, and the Airport Future project. A complete list of amendments through November 2011 may be found in Appendix A. There have been no further ordinances that have amended the comprehensive plan policies since November 2011.
