Regional planning -- Oregon -- Pleasant Valley, Community development -- Oregon -- Pleasant Valley, Natural resources management areas -- Oregon -- Pleasant Valley


As a society, we are slowly learning the importance of the interaction between the natural and built environments. We need a new model for planning and development that gives more weight to natural resource considerations than has traditionally occurred in the development process.

An opportunity exists in Pleasant Valley to bring focus to natural resources in future planning efforts by tapping into the local knowledge of residents who know and love the land. Because the area will begin to urbanize in the near future, it is necessary to learn about the area before development occurs or people move away. The purpose of this project was to gather the local knowledge of natural resources and distill it into key findings to guide future plans.


Clients: City of Portland Bureau of Planning, City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services, and City of Gresham Community Development Department.
