On October 24, 2012 the Portland City Council unanimously approved the Central City 2035 Concept Plan. The Concept Plan comes after two years of stakeholder involvement and public outreach and charts a course for Portland’s future over the coming decades. It outlines policies and directions to guide the city center’s growth and development and emphasizes the important role the city center plays for the region.
The Concept Plan will also guide the development of four detailed quadrant plans within the Central City (N/NE, SE, NW and SW). The work for the West Quadrant Plan (which includes the NW and SW Quadrants) is slated to start in January 2013. Community members are being encouraged to apply for the West Quadrant Plan Stakeholder Advisory Committee through an open application process. Information is available here.
