Portland’s Comprehensive Plan Update is in its fifth and final phase: Early Implementation.
The projects described below began in early 2014 and will become effective soon after state acknowledgement of Portland's new Comprehensive Plan in 2018. These projects are necessary to either address a state mandate or implement a key component of the new Plan. Future implementation projects will become part of the City’s ongoing work programs.
These early implementation projects overlap with work from the previous phase of the Comprehensive Plan Update. Take a look at the Combined Schedule of Early Implementation Projects to see how.
The Composite Zoning Proposal combines proposed Zoning Map changes from four 2035 Comprehensive Plan Early Implementation projects — Mixed Use Zones, Residential and Open Space Zoning, Campus Institutional Zoning and Employment Zoning — into a single map.

This project will develop new mixed-use planning and zoning designations in Portland’s commercial and central employment zones.
