Neighborhood planning -- Oregon -- Portland, Community development -- Oregon -- Portland


The Eliot Neighborhood Plan is the product of the Comprehensive Planning Workshop conducted by the School of Urban Affairs at Portland State University. The planning team consisted of thirteen graduate students in consultation with Professors Thomas Gihring and Sumner Sharpe.

The objectives of the plan are:

  1. To develop a policy framework which will serve as a guiding document for the future development of the neighborhood in compliance with the Portland Comprehensive Plan.
  2. To suggest implementation strategies designed to carry out the goals and policies and to resolve conflicts.
  3. To provide the students with practical experience in planning in an actual urban situation.

The scope of the plan is limited to the major issues of Economic Development, Housing, Transportation and Traffic, and Land Use as determined by citizen involvement.

It is intended to reflect the expressed needs and desires of the Eliot Neighborhood Association and other neighborhood organizations, and to guide the city officials in decision making which affects the neighborhood.
