1912 Plan

In 1912, a city beautification plan was developed for Portland by Bennet (who had worked on the Chicago plan). This was Portland's first comprehensive plan and the only one adopted by the voters. This view of Bennett's ideal of Portland is from where Piggot's Castle is now and shows the 7-8 story buildings and new diagonal streets with Paris as a model.
