Phase 2: "Where do we want to go?"
We need a plan that sets clear investment priorities and has quantifiable measures of success, so we can track our progress and make adjustments as we move forward.
In Phase Two, we asked Portlanders what kinds of big ambitious changes do we need to aim for to make this a better place? Look ahead 25 years and imagine what’s possible.
Nearly 1,500 people attended events to help evaluate and prioritize the draft goals and objectives. An additional 6,500 people responded to the Phase Two survey by mail or online.
Portlanders identified these value statements and goals as being especially important:
We can’t move forward without addressing equity
The economy will drive broader success
Education is key to prosperity
Portlanders want healthy streams and watersheds
Sustainability and prosperity are not polar opposites
We want safe and accessible/walkable neighborhoods
Maintaining the existing infrastructure should be a priority
