Our Work

PDC is Portland

The Portland Development Commission focuses on what matters to Portland: job creation, economic development, collaboration and good stewardship of public funds. Using urban renewal as a tool to focus public attention and resources in blighted or underused areas, PDC invests financial and human capital to serve the city and its citizens.

Urban Renewal

PDC uses urban renewal as a tool to help specific areas of the city realize capital projects – parks, streetscape improvements, community centers – that would not happen on their own. learn more >

Economic Development

PDC is committed to helping businesses grow and prosper. We work with companies of all sizes and needs, tailoring loans, incentives and connections to other resources accordingly. learn more >
