The Central City Natural Resources Inventory (CCNRI) identifies the existing natural resources (e.g. wetlands, vegetation) in the CC2035 planning area, and describes and evaluates the functions and values they provide (e.g. flood storage, microclimate and shade).
The inventory approach is based on the science and methodology that Metro used to produce a regional inventory of riparian corridors and wildlife habitat. The City has refined the regional inventory to include recent scientific information about resources in Portland. The CCNRI is a technical document and does not propose any new programs or regulations.
The Draft CCNRI is now available for public review. Download a copy of the Draft Central City Natural Resources Inventory report. Comments on the draft CCNRI report may be provided until August 1, 2013 though the online comment form or in writing to Bureau of Planning and Sustainability staff:
