You're Invited - Learn About the Shape of Future Portland

Portland is expected to grow over the next 20 years, and in our neighborhood, we're expecting new buildings and businesses along Lombard, Interstate and Rosa Parks. Can you imagine buildings in our neighborhood of this scale? The City's 20 year plan for future development, The Comprehensive Plan indicates that we may get some bigger buildings with both residences and businesses in them than we now see.

 
We're letting you know about this because the City is taking input on how to regulate the way new buildings impact neighbors. How tall should buildings be when they're built next to shorter houses? How can we encourage ground-floor activity in new businesses in our area? How can zoning regulations preserve historic structures and housing affordability?

If you've wondered why the city looks a certain way when it grows, this series of workshops will fill in some gaps in your knowledge.

The information sessions will begin with an informal drop-in open house, followed by a presentation. Staff will be available after the presentation to answer questions and listen to feedback.
