Planning, Historic Preservation and Transportation

Planning is about preserving and enhancing what makes Portland great. In the Planning Division, we work with a variety of stakeholders to develop long-range plans and policies to help Portland thrive. We plan Portland's future by building upon the City's distinct historic, cultural, and natural assets to achieve a livable and sustainable built and natural environment, exemplified by dignified and engaging public spaces, a strong sense of community, and a diversity of healthy neighborhoods and business districts comprising a vibrant urban center.
