Economic Opportunities Analysis: Volume 1 Trends, Opportunities, and Market Factors (April 2022)
Oregon’s land use planning system requires that cities update their comprehensive plans periodically and provide for adequate 20-year growth capacity, based on an Economic Opportunity Analysis (EOA) and a housing needs analysis (HNA). The EOA analyzes and forecasts growth in Portland’s industrial and other business districts, then designates an adequate 20-year supply of developable land for businesses and jobs. The City of Portland is updating the existing EOA, adopted in 2016, to align 2045 growth expectations with current market trends and community choices.
