Rapidly growing demand for wireless and data services is increasing pressure on two of Portland’s finite resources: the public right of way and City-owned poles in the public right of way. PBOT leads this multi-bureau effort to develop and implement a comprehensive, proactive management plan for these assets. Activities include updates to design guidance collaborating with Bureau of Development Services, Portland Design Commission, and Historic Landmarks Commission, developing a Wireless Master & Marketing Plan, as well as code updates, citywide inventories of vertical infrastructure and radio frequency studies, and strategy development to address challenges and opportunities.
