Partners for Positive Change
Successful PDC projects depend on neighbors, business and government collaborating to create positive change. We want to create one of the world’s most desirable and equitable cities by investing in job creation, innovation and economic opportunity throughout Portland. We value citizen input and participation, and encourage Portland residents and stakeholders to engage with PDC initiatives.
PDC is guided by its internal PDC Strategic Plan and by the city’s Economic Development Strategy, both of which place strong emphasis on partnership and collaboration. To foster economic and neighborhood vitality throughout Portland - particularly for communities of color and within priority geographic areas - PDC supports a community-driven approach that successfully positions local businesses, neighborhoods and their residents to connect to and compete in the regional economy.
