They include work to support things such as the envisioned multi-cultural hub, affordable housing, work force training, community services, new open spaces, infrastructure planning and more. Read about these in Sections 2 and 3 of the plan:


Partner organizations, including Unite Oregon, Community Alliance of Tenants and HAKI Community Organization, are ready to inform, involve and grow community as the plan and future changes takes shape. Read more about the SW Corridor Equity Coalition

New regulations in the zoning code 

As part of the proposed West Portland Multicultural Plan District 

A wide variety of regulations are proposed that cover topics such as minimum densities, preservation of low-cost apartments, tiered incentives to promote public benefits, design standards for multi dwelling areas, required green features for commercial areas, and fostering employment.
