82nd Avenue: Development and Transportation Planning


  • ODOT 82nd Avenue of Roses Implementation Plan
  • BPS 82nd Ave Study: Understanding Barriers to Development


The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) are evaluating opportunity areas along 82nd Avenue between NE Killingsworth Street and SE Johnson Creek Boulevard to improve quality of life for residents and businesses along the corridor.


ODOT is creating a list of feasible projects to improve safety, mobility and access for people using 82nd Avenue. BPS’ efforts focus on understanding and addressing barriers to redevelopment/adaptive reuse, mixed use and employment opportunities in key areas. A summary report will be released in September.

Residential Infill Project (RIP) Fall Update

The project team drafting code and map concepts for public review this fall. Presentation at the Sept. 14th LUTOP meeting @CNN.

Since City Council’s adoption of the Concept Report in December 2016, project staff have been developing code and map changes to implement the adopted concepts. Staff are also responding to mayoral direction to draft a housing opportunity overlay zone boundary for the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) to consider.

This fall the public will have an opportunity to review proposed code changes and Zoning Map amendments prior to the PSC hearings in winter 2018. The seven-week public review period is scheduled to begin the week of September 25. We will soon be posting more information about upcoming public review opportunities on our website.

Neighborhood Contact Requirement Project

A new project kicks off to improve how we inform residents about new development.

This project will review the “Neighborhood Contact” requirement in the Zoning Code (33.700.025)( https://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/53464), exploring ways to create a workable and effective process that meets the goals of information sharing and early dialogue with community members. This was an element of the Code Reconciliation Project, but has now been moved to a separate project.

A Discussion Draft will be released in the fall.

Transportation System Plan (3) Update PSC Hearing 9/26

TSP Stage 3 Update
Notice of PSC Public Hearing 9/26

Discussion Draft Public Involvement/Comment
The Discussion Draft was open for 64 days from May 19 – July 21. Staff provided TSP outreach at 30 events across the city from the Multnomah Arts Center, to the Kenton Firehouse, to the Rosewood Initiative, and JAMS Space. Staff reviewed over 120 individual comments received during the Discussion Draft (some with multiple signatories). Among the comments we received, we heard the most about 1) Interest in a TDM study for the West Hills (Section 3: Geographic Policies) and 2) proposed street classifications on SE 20th Ave (Section 4: Street Classifications).
The Proposed Draft includes staff comments about changes made between the Discussion Draft and Proposed Draft, as the result of public feedback. These comments are at the beginning of each section. In the coming days, staff will send another update to this email list, with a link to staff responses to comments received on the Discussion Draft, and “crosswalk” tables of policies proposed for deletion (with citations of their superseding Comp Plan policies and rationale).
To request a version of the Proposed Draft of the TSP Stage 3 Update that functions with accessible readers for the visually impaired, please email TSP3@portlandoregon.gov with the subject line “ADA version”.

The 2035 TSP:
Moving more people in more ways
Portland is projected to add 140,000 new jobs and 260,000 new residents over the next 20 years. If in 2035 the percentage of people who drive alone to work remains the same as it is now (nearly 60 percent), traffic, climate pollution, and household spending on vehicles and fuel will all worsen significantly. In order to accommodate this growth, our transportation system must provide Portlanders safer and more convenient ways to walk, bike, and take transit for more trips.
