Park Development in Industrial Zones

City Of Portland   
Urban | |
Part of Portland’s economic development goals include ensuring that parks, trails, natural areas, and a healthy environment continue to protect the city’s quality of life and attract businesses and the workforce alike. Accordingly, Portland set forth a policy of allowing park development within industrial zones to guarantee adequate park service within one-half mile of every resident.

This policy will make green infrastructure conveniently accessible to all residents of Portland. Additionally, the added green spaces will aid the city in the capture and storage of stormwater, as well as the reduction of CO2 in the surrounding atmosphere.
