The 2035 Comprehensive Plan is built on a solid foundation: the Portland Plan, the Climate Action Plan and Portland’s 1980 Comprehensive Plan.
After a four-year update process, the new 2035 Comprehensive Plan was adopted on June 15, 2016. Portland’s Comprehensive Plan is a long-range plan that helps the City prepare for and manage expected population and employment growth, as well as plan for and coordinate major public investments. The package of Early Implementation projects includes changes to the Zoning Map, Zoning Code, and other documents to implement the new Comprehensive Plan. It was adopted by City Council on December 21, 2016.
With adoption, all phases of the Comprehensive Plan Update project are completed, and the entire plan is now with the state Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD). Pending DLCD review and acknowledgement, the new plan will take effect on January 1, 2018, replacing Portland’s first comprehensive plan that was adopted in 1980 and updated many times since.
