CHANGING TRANSPORTATION POLICY IN THE CITY OF PORTLAND

The City of Portland recently undertook a major reexamination of transportation policy with respect to the downtown and other parts of what is referred to as the Central City area. A long-standing policy of restricting the total amount of parking in the downtown as a measure to achieve and maintain air quality standards was reviewed in a more regional context and in light of significant changes in the nature of the air quality concerns in the region. The Central City Transportation Management Plan for Portland included a thorough technical assessment of the transportation and air quality impacts of two regional development scenarios: one that concentrated development in the Central City area and one that spread development more evenly throughout the region.
