Help shape Central City transportation

Comment on the Central City 2035 Plan Discussion Draft before March 31, 2016

What is the Central City 2035 Plan?

Central City 2035 will update the plan and policies for downtown and central areas of the City of Portland. It will address challenges and opportunities in the Central City to ensure this unique economic, transportation, cultural and educational hub will be a vibrant resource for all Portlanders over the next 25 years.

What is the Discussion Draft?

The purpose of the Discussion Draft is to gather your feedback on preliminary proposals to help shape the growth, development, and transportation of the Central City into the year 2035. The public feedback will inform staff in developing the next version of the proposal, which will go to the Planning & Sustainability Commission for their consideration and recommendations to City Council.

How does this fit into the Transportation System Plan process?

Land use and transportation are interrelated so we consider them as a package. Components of the Transportation System Plan (TSP) that relate to the Central City are being addressed holistically as part of the Central City 2035 Plan rather than as part of the citywide TSP Update process currently underway (including TSP Stage 1 and Stage 2 Updates). The results of this process will update the TSP.
