Infrastructure and Public Services Lag Behind Population Growth in East Portland

Portland has grown steadily in the past two decades, and much of this growth has occurred in East Portland. Many new apartment buildings have gone up, attracting a lot of newcomers to fill them. But the population increase has outpaced the development of sidewalks and other infrastructure and public amenities such as parks, and schools are overcrowded. Proposed changes to the Comprehensive Plan Map will reduce the potential for dense new development in neighborhoods where infrastructure and services still need to catch up. This will help ensure these neighborhoods can become safer, healthier and more accessible.

Watch this video to learn more about changes in the Comprehensive Plan to address these issues, and check out the Map App’s “Risks and Service Gaps” layer to see where the proposed changes will occur. You can also use the Map App to submit testimony to the Planning and Sustainability Commission as they consider the draft 2035 plan.
