We’re almost there! Next week, Portland City Council will begin public hearings on the Comprehensive Plan Update Recommended Early Implementation Package. This is the final lap for the project before Portland’s entire 2035 Comprehensive Plan is adopted and sent to the state for acknowledgement.
The package includes combined changes to the Zoning Code and Zoning Map from all of the Comp Plan Early Implementation projects, including Mixed Use Zones, Campus Institutions, Employment Zoning and more. The package also includes a new Community Involvement Program and Stage 2 of the Transportation Systems Plan.
