A unified Portland Economic Development Plan has been created in collaboration with the Portland Community Chamber of Commerce, the Creative Portland Corporation, the Downtown Portland Corporation, and the City of Portland. These groups formed a Task Force to steer the direction of the Plan from its infancy to completion. The Task Force will now oversee the work plan activities and annually measure progress.
The Plan has three main sections:
All three Plan sections set forth a development direction for Portland, including specific work plan activities to support “creating economic prosperity through growth of the City’s employment and tax base”, while paying respect to Portland’s quality of life. The last page of the Plan is the 2011-2012 Work Plan. Fund raising discussions are underway to cover the costs of these activities.
