Land Use Resources
This site is actively maintained by the city and is the hub for almost any question you might have about properties, zonings, future planning, etc. Make sure to look through the Portland Maps Gallery for some of the best maps any city in the US provides about itself. Here's some of my favorites:
- Earthquake Hazard Map
- Construction Maps
- Demolition Maps
- Map of legal Short-Term Rentals
This site is not maintained by the city, but they do attempt to follow the latest news to keep up to date on upcoming projects and such.
