What's the West Portland Town Center Plan?
The West Portland Town Center (WPTC) Plan, currently under development by the Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) in collaboration with Southwest Equity Coalition (SWEC) is part of Portland’s 2035 Comprehensive Plan aimed at managing growth in ways that will create and maintain inclusive, diverse, and complete communities. The WPTC vision includes a multi-cultural center, affordable housing with co-located human services, and support for minority owned businesses. Click here for more information.
