GPEDD’s Board of Directors, more than 40 additional advisors from across the region, a team of consultants, as well as staff from Greater Portland Inc and Metro worked to develop this plan from July to October 2020. This is a short-term, adaptable plan of 3 to 24 months focused on immediate action that will help to leverage resources, establish a strong unified voice in aligning efforts, and provide accountability during implementation.

The plan applies to the federally-designated economic development district, which encompasses Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties in Oregon and Clark County in Washington.
