Periodic Review Presentation for Feb. 9 Planning Commission - February 10, 2010
Bookmark and Share

State law requires local governments to periodically review their comprehensive land use plans and development regulations (zoning, subdivision, environmental) to ensure they comply with statewide planning goals. This comprehensive plan review process is called “periodic review.”


The Portland Plan is a broad, strategic plan with objectives, policy directions and "quick starts." Periodic Review (a subset of the Portland Plan) establishes a "factual basis" in several topic areas per State law. The relevant topic areas are land supply and development potential, and employment and housing needs (including things that constrain those elements).


This presentation covered housing and employment forecasts, buildable land suppy and the Natural Resources Inventory.
