Future growth: Connection to Portland's 2035 Comprehensive Plan

Segments of Halsey are a Neighborhood Corridor and are close to many Centers.

Corridors Centers
Neighborhood Corridors are narrower main streets that connect neighborhoods with each other and to other parts of the city. Centers provide the primary areas for growth and change in Portland over the next 25 years. They are compact urban places that anchor complete neighborhoods.
