The Mixed Use Zones Project is revising Portland’s commercial zones outside of the Central City, where new housing, shops and services are focused into a network of centers and corridors. The project creates new commercial/mixed use zones that address community feedback about the size, scale and mass of new mixed use development in Portland’s commercial areas. The new zones also help address policies of Portland’s new Comprehensive Plan that call for providing more affordable housing, creating commercial spaces in centers, greening urban spaces, etc. through development requirements and incentives in these areas.


Testimony to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) on the Mixed Use Zones Project Zoning Code amendments was open until May 24, 2016. The PSC continued to accept testimony on the Zoning Map amendments through July 12, 2016, when a subsequent public hearing was held on the proposed Composite Zoning Map (which includes Mixed Use Zoning Map changes).
