The goals and policies of the Comprehensive Plan describe the long-term outcomes and direction on how the City will achieve the intended work of the Plan.
Goals are long-term outcomes the City hopes to achieve by implementing the Comprehensive Plan. They are aspirational, expressing Portland residents’ collective desires and values.
Policies set preferred direction and describe what must be done to achieve these broad goals. They are specific enough to help determine whether a proposed project or program would advance the values expressed in the goals.
