Map App

The Map App shows how changes to land use, transportation and infrastructure will help us grow in centers and corridors, create more jobs, address natural hazards and City service gaps, and help make Portland a more livable city.

Centers and Corridors

Centers and Corridors are clusters of shops, restaurants, offices, and homes that promote convenience, walkability and access to services. Rules for building size and design will be updated through the Mixed Use Zones Project. Growth will be scaled based on the designations on this map, with the Central City getting the largest share.

Jobs

The Proposed Draft includes areas where a variety of new jobs can be created. Large schools and hospitals will have a new plan designation (“Campus Institution”). New rules for campuses will be developed through the Institutional Zoning Project. Upcoming zoning code changes intend to better support job growth in employment areas.

Risks and Service Gaps

Natural Hazards and Drainage Constraints

Proposed changes in Portland’s Comprehensive Plan will help protect health and public safety, avoid increasing natural hazard risks, and acknowledge limited infrastructure and services. In this video, Environmental Planner Roberta Jortner explains the reasons behind proposed down designations in parts of Southwest and East Portland with drainage problems and natural hazards such as landslides.

East Portland

Proposed changes in Portland’s Comprehensive Plan also acknowledge limited infrastructure and services. In this video, the City’s East Portland District Liaison Chris Scarzello explains the reasons behind proposed down designations to land use in areas of East Portland. These are intended to address problems where current zoning has allowed population growth to outpace improvements to infrastructure and school capacity.

Neighborhoods, Parks and Open Space

The changes included in the Proposed Draft are primarily adjustments to residential densities and updates to open space designations.

Transportation and Infrastructure

Transportation

The projects on the Transportation tab of the Map App represent a partial list of candidate transportation projects and programs being considered in the Transportation System Plan (TSP) update. The map includes projects within the City of Portland included in the 2007 Transportation System Plan (TSP) and the 2014 Regional Transportation Plan. It does not include programs that cover the entire city, such as citywide Transportation Demand Management (TDM) education and incentive programs.

This map will evolve over the coming months to include candidate projects from plans adopted since the last TSP update and new projects needed to meet goals and objectives. An updated Proposed Draft TSP project list will be released in the fall.

Other infrastructure systems

The Infrastructure tab of the Map App shows planned improvements to the City’s water, sewer, and stormwater systems, as well as desired improvements to parks, trails, and recreation facilities. The map shows location-specific projects identified in the City’s 20-year infrastructure plan, the Citywide Systems Plan. It does not show citywide projects and programs, or those that do not have an identified location.

A number of the projects shown on the map are also included in the List of Significant Projects, as they are necessary to serve the land uses proposed in the Comprehensive Plan Map.
