As part of the River Plan / Central Reach and Central City 2035 projects, the City is updating existing environmental information and management tools to help meet watershed health goals and advance the City's compliance with local, regional, state and federal regulations. The first step in this update is to produce an inventory of existing natural resources. The inventory is a technical document that provides information about existing resources and evaluates the functions and values they provide; it does not propose any new programs or regulations.
Stage one of the inventory provides maps, data and descriptions of the Willamette River, river banks and upland resources in the Central City, and more detailed descriptions of the natural resources in the N/NE Quadrant. Stage two will follow-up with detailed information for the NW, SW and SE quadrants. A draft of the Stage 1 material will be available for public review soon - look for it on the CC2035 website by June 23rd. Comments on the draft may be emailed to BPSWNRI@portlandoregon.gov.
