This project is a part of the 1989 Comprehensive Planning Workshop, the capstone of the Graduate Urban Planning curriculum at Portland State University. The goal was to develop a regional Housing Plan for Southeast Portland. Southeast Uplift Neighborhood Coalition, a non-profit organization offering administrative and technical support to Southeast neighborhood associations and other citizen groups agreed to cooperate in this endeavor. The goal and policies of this plan are those of the graduate students in the Master of Urban Planning program.

The planning area, nearly coinciding with neighborhoods Southeast Uplift represents is bounded by the Willamette River to the west, I-84 to the north, (including that area north of Burnside Street with Northeast addresses), I-205 to the east and the Portland city limits to the south. The physical barrier pose by I-205 created a logical boundary for our planning area. This differs from the Southeast Uplift boundary which encompasses neighborhoods east of the freeway.
