Task 5: Implementation

The update to Portland’s Comprehensive Plan is entering its fifth and final phase: Early Implementation.

The projects described below are beginning in early 2014 and will become effective soon after the adoption of the new Comprehensive Plan in 2015. These projects are necessary to either address a state mandate or implement a key component of the new Comprehensive Plan. Future implementation projects will be undertaken as part of the City’s ongoing work programs.

Early implementation projects overlap with work from the previous phase of the Comprehensive Plan Update. Over the past year, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) has conducted extensive public involvement to gather feedback on the Comprehensive Plan Working Draft, which included draft goals and policies, maps and a list of potential capital projects. Staff is in the process of considering all comments received to produce the Proposed Draft, which will be presented to the Planning and Sustainability Commission in the summer of 2014.
