Urban Design Direction, 2014

The Comprehensive Plan goals and policies shape how the city will grow. Guided by these goals and policies, the Urban Design Framework provides a structure for Portland’s current and future physical form and layout. The framework describes and maps the city in terms of major elements such as its places, natural features, and connections. The Urban Design Framework will be part of the basis for drawing the new Comprehensive Plan Map that guides land use, design, and investment decisions.
