Last Wednesday, December 14, 2016, marked the beginning of the Comprehensive Plan Update’s final chapter. That afternoon, City Council formally accepted the substitute ordinance and exhibits reflecting their November 22 amendments to the Recommended Early Implementation Package. This package includes:
- Zoning Code changes
- Zoning Map changes (including Major Public Trails)
- A new Community Involvement Program
- Transportation System Plan – Stage 2
Together these will implement the 2035 Comprehensive Plan, adopted on June 15, 2016.
This Wednesday, December 21, City Council will consider Portland’s new Comprehensive Plan for the very last time, as they vote on the new Zoning Code and Map. Built on a solid foundation from the 2012 Portland Plan, the Climate Action Plan and Portland’s 1980 Comprehensive Plan, the 2035 Comprehensive Plan represents the input of tens of thousands of Portlanders to make Portland more prosperous, healthy, educated and equitable, as well as, continuing the commitment to linking land use and transportation decisions.

In early 2017, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will organize the legislative record and transmit City Council’s decision to the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development for “acknowledgment.” Once transmitted, a “Notice of Adoption” will be mailed to all who testified on the Recommended Early Implementation Package.
Portland’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan will tentatively take effect on January 1, 2018, following state acknowledgement.
