State Acknowledgement Process

The update of Portland’s Comprehensive Plan is the periodic review of a local comprehensive plan, as required by the State of Oregon (ORS 197.628 - 636). During 2017, Portland’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan will be reviewed by the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD) to ensure that it is consistent with statewide planning goals.

Individuals who have participated in the local process are sent a notification of adoption. This includes anyone who testified at a Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) or City Council hearing, wrote an email or letter to the PSC or Council, or submitted comments on the Map App. Questions about the acknowledgement process should be directed to DLCD.

Portland’s City Council adopted a Periodic Review Work Plan in 2008, and amended it in 2011. The work plan has five tasks. The State requires cities/municipalities to electronically submit each task of periodic review (Tasks 1 – 5) in chronological order. 

Below is a summary of the status of each of Portland’s Periodic Review tasks.
