Portland is made up of more than 90 neighborhoods, many of which have bustling centers or streets where people can shop, eat, work, play and take transit to jobs. But not all parts of Portland have these kinds of amenities or access to public transportation.
The city’s new proposed Comprehensive Plan is focused on creating more of these thriving, healthy and connected neighborhoods throughout the city, in part by targeting housing and job growth in Portland’s centers and corridors. Zoning regulations will need to support these functions, as well as promote pedestrian-friendly streets and sidewalks; create desirable places to live, work and visit; and address the needs of nearby residential areas.
The Mixed Use Zones Project (MUZ) will revise the zoning code for commercial and mixed use zones to help create more vibrant centers and corridors. The project is part of Task 5: Implementation for the Comprehensive Plan Update.
