This report summarizes the results of the Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) grant funded portion of Metro's Regional Mainstreets Project. The work is part of a larger Metro planning effort focused on the “main streets” designated on the Region 2040 Growth Concept.

The report contains an introductory discussion of the purpose of the study; a section that examines the factors associated with vital main streets; a section that recommends an overall implementation strategy and specific actions by Metro, local governments and the development community; and a presentation of key “regional standards and guidelines” for consideration in local comprehensive plans and land use regulations.

This project is partially funded by an Oregon Lottery grant awarded by the Transportation and Growth Management (TGM) Program, a Joint Program of the Oregon Department of Transportation and the Oregon Department of Land Conservation and Development.
