N/NE Development Initiative

The North/Northeast Economic Development Initiative is an analysis of past and planned investments, possible boundary adjustments and priorities for new investments in the Interstate Corridor and Oregon Convention Center Urban Renewal Areas. The Portland Development Commission (PDC) is conducting the N/NE Economic Development Initiative in partnership with the community to ensure that PDC investments enhance livability and economic opportunity within the two urban renewal areas and the city at-large.

Parts of Eliot Neighborhood are in both the Interstate Corridor Urban Renewal and Oregon Convention Center Urban Renewal areas.  Changes to either URA could impact – positively or negatively – jobs, business expansion, revitalization, our historic building inventory, street improvements, and more in the neighborhood.

Monthly public meetings are held right here in Eliot Neighborhood at the newly restored Billy Webb Elks Lodge – 6 N Tillamook Street.  For more information contact Joleen Jensen-Classen at 503-823-3352, jensen-classenj@pdc.us.  Or visit www.pdc.us/four/nnestudy for the upcoming meeting schedule, a library of meeting materials, and a lot more information.
