Portland merges offices to create new Bureau of Planning and Sustainability
In January 2009, Portland City Council merged the Bureau of Planning with the Office of Sustainable Development to create the new Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. The Bureau of Planning has had an exceptional record of guiding Portland's growth and development toward the thriving, livable city that it is today. The Office of Sustainable Development pioneered policies and programs that integrate environmental, economic, and social benefits.
This new bureau will ensure that sustainability principles are integrated into the core of Portland's planning, urban design and government operations, strengthening Portland's position as the global epicenter of sustainable practices and commerce.
