Objective 4: Link transportation to land use more effectively


Collaborate and partner to improve land use and transportation planning efforts for major developments and corridor projects. Deliver better outcomes for residents.


Strategic Initiatives

  • Collaborate with city bureaus and partner agencies to integrate plans for balancing jobs and housing and increasing access to essential services, starting with the Southwest Corridor, East Portland, and Northeast Portland.

  • Develop and implement new review guidelines to ensure new development yields investments in infrastructure for walking, biking, and taking transit, rather than using standards for automobile level-of-service.

  • Expand programs to support transportation options that align with affordable housing efforts and major transportation improvements. 

  • Strengthen the value of the central city as a vibrant commercial center accessible to all Portlanders.

  • Update the freight master plan to support better movement of goods and a vibrant, sustainable economy.
