The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability just launched a new online tool that allows users to make comments on a series of maps for the Comprehensive Plan Update. From centers, corridors and urban habitat corridors to employment, stormwater, transportation and more, the new Map App offers a dynamic map-based environment for Portlanders to dive deeply into the inner workings of their city.

 

Roughly 30 map layers are included in the Map App, including 11 "discussion layers" that represent areas of potential change or investment. A collection of "background layers" provides visual information about Portland's median age and income, population density, park access, employment areas, watershed health and other data sets. Users can combine layers together to see connections between different map layers. They can also comment directly in the Map App or with the online comment form. Public feedback is welcome until December 31.

 

The Map App is part of the Working Draft Part 2: Maps and Infrastructure, which complements the Working Draft Part 1: Goals and Policies. Together they make up what will become Portland's new Comprehensive Plan. For more information about the Comprehensive Plan Update, please visit www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/pdxcompplan.
