City planning -- Portland Oregon -- Metropolitan Area
The objective of this research study is to identify the Metro area in such a manner as to give planning personnel a composite picture of the area. Such a picture should not only give physical and statistical data but should also provide a feeling for the area and its parts. The reader of this report should be able to perceive from it the conscience of the community. It should show strengths and weaknesses of the communities, methods of solving problems, intra-and inter-community relationships and roles and community identity. It should be concerned ·with how well the community (and subparts) meets those needs which bring people into a community relationship. The project should attempt to identify norms, values, attitudes, and emotional climate. It should, by examining the parts, give a picture of the whole.
