The Portland Development Commission (PDC) is the City’s urban renewal and economic development agency. Since 1958, the PDC has been a driving force for tax increment financing and other tools intended to boost job creation in the community. Their policies have been complex and at times controversial, due to the having policies that can transform the face of communities.

TriMet, the tri-county region’s public transportation agency, provides bus, light rail, and commuter rail service to millions every year. Between the 1970’s and 1980’s, TriMet was involved in many innovations that promoted sustainable alternatives to automobile transportation and continues that tradition to this day.

Pioneer Square is an urban park affectionately known as the City’s “living room.” Slated to become a 800-car parking garage in 1969, the Portland Planning commission rejected the idea, and led to the creation of one of Portland’s most iconic treasures. From festivals to protests, the Square hosts more than 300 events each year, drawing nearly 10 million visitors.

Local nonprofit Portland City Club provides leadership development, intellectual stimulation, and social interaction to citizens who want to learn and be engaged on local policy. Since 1920, City Club members have prepared over 1000 reports on a wide variety of topics, including land use planning, health care, education, and the environment.

Portland State University’s Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies convenes regional partners, curates credible information and conducts objective policy research to stimulate dialogue and action that address critical regional issues. In addition, the Institute provides statewide information about demographic trends through the Population Research Center, an affiliate program of IMS.

City of Portland’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement serves as a vital communication link between community members, neighborhoods, and City of Portland bureaus.  ONI works in partnership with many organizations including Neighborhood Associations, District Coalitions, Business District Associations, City agencies, and a wide range of community organizations to involve and inform the public in the civic life of the City.
