Portland’s City Council unanimously adopts new Zoning Code and Map, Community Involvement Program and Transportation System Plan

Mayor and commissioners’ vote marks final City Council action on the Comprehensive Plan Update

This afternoon, City Council voted unanimously to amend Portland’s Zoning Map, Zoning Code and Transportation System Plan, as well as establish a new Community Involvement Program. These items make up the Recommended Early Implementation Package of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan. With their votes, the Mayor and Commissioners took their last action on the Comprehensive Plan Update.

Final Steps
Portland’s newly adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan will now go to the state for acknowledgement. In early 2017, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will organize the legislative record and transmit City Council’s decision to the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development. Once transmitted, a “Notice of Adoption” will be mailed to all who testified on the Recommended Early Implementation Package.

Portland’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan will tentatively take effect on January 1, 2018, following state acknowledgement.
