Major sectors of job growth in Portland over the past 10 years have been healthcare and higher education. That trend is projected to continue into the foreseeable future. But hospitals and college and university campuses are running out of room to expand their services and create space for new jobs.
The Campus Institutional Zoning Project was created to help Portland’s college and hospital campuses grow over the next 20 years, while protecting surrounding neighborhoods from the potential negative impacts of such development.
The Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) will accept testimony on the Proposed Draft through December 15, 2015, and is expected to deliberate and vote on a recommendation to City Council in January 2016.
Attend the PSCs public hearing on December 15 at 5 p.m. at 1900 SW 4th Ave, Suite 2500A.
