Planning and Transportation Committee
The Planning and Transportation Committee is focused on the built environment of the Pearl District. All projects going through city design review are reviewed. Any neighborhood planning efforts regarding city code, design guidelines, design in general, and transportation are done in this committee.
The committee tracks transportation issues and advocates for transportation solutions. The committee also tracks the River District Urban Renewal District and advocates on behalf of the neighborhood with the Portland Development Commission.
The Pearl District is a very important urban neighborhood in Portland’s Central City and, as a result, several city and public-approved plans inform the development and design of the district. These plans are the result of thousands of hours of community input and are designed to be implemented over multiple decades. They take a long-term view of the Pearl District and its role for the city, the region, and the urban growth boundary.
The entire neighborhood is zoned EX for central employment mixed use
