City planning -- Oregon -- Portland, Land use -- Oregon -- Portland, Globalization


It is the purpose of this paper to shed a little light on information that has been gathered on the trends of globalization; to examine those trends as they are occurring within the region within the context of the values and goals of the Portland metropolitan area; and to offer classmates an opportunity for exploring the meaning of these trends and values as they relate to their own particular planning projects.

In short, this entire project is conceived as a point of departure for recognizing the impact of globalization on contemporary planning practice within the Portland metro area. It offers a review of local globalization statistics. But it also offers a framework for considering . such impacts. Decisions on how to approach globalization trends should be based, after all, on the values and goals of the people of Portland; not on those of an individual or of a narrow set of interest groups. Nor should our local response be necessarily based on the values or goals of larger groups of the nation or world.
