The Portland Industry and Commerce Plan, drafted by a committee of Portland resi
The Portland Industry and Commerce Plan, drafted by a committee of Portland residents and business people, proposes overhauling the city's zoning laws to make them more flexible and the city more accommodating to businesses. The zoning regulations, which haven't been updated since the 1950s, would be based on noise, odor and other standards, while continuing to list permitted and prohibited uses. The performance-based standards would allow more flexibility to attract businesses, but require more work by applicants and city staff to assess if projects meet the standards. Details.
