Drive Urban Innovation
Portland’s leadership as an urban innovator is the result of investments in transit, land use, bicycling infrastructure, high density development, green building and recycling. Portland’s distinctive position as an urban laboratory provides opportunities to test and showcase new technologies and products, and is a powerful draw for entrepreneurs and an educated, creative workforce. These investments and accomplishments combine to form a culture and knowledge base that advances both Portland’s economic stature and its sustainable way of life. To maintain our cutting-edge distinctiveness and reputation, PDC continues to invest in next-generation sustainable solutions and catalytic green development initiatives.
