The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability’s historic resources program provides information, guidance, and policy expertise to citizens, property owners, elected leaders, and other community partners interested in designating, protecting, and adaptively reusing Portland’s historic places. Program staff advance preservation-related planning projects, liaise with state and federal agencies, manage historic resource protection programs, and provide technical assistance to all Portlanders.
