Neighborhood planning -- Oregon -- Portland, City Planning -- Oregon -- Albina


The Comprehensive Planning Workshop is the capstone of the Portland State University's Master of Urban Planning program. The workshop projects are planning studies that have a practical use long after the school term is over.

Originally, the workshop intended to research Albina's history as a background piece to our main research efforts. It became clear to us that there was a rich, fascinating story to be told about Albina, one that we wished to develop and make accessible to more people. Therefore, we produced two documents, this history as a separate document, designed to stand alone, and a companion document which presents our findings and recommendations.

The companion document is attached as an additional file and can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
