COP Land Use Updates (September 2018) This document provides information about the many zoning code projects that are currently underway.

SW Corridor and OHSU Connector ProjectThis project is so large and encompassing that it is difficult to get specific information quickly and easily about the various moving parts.  Be sure to at least access the Library Project page from the main website.  This will give you information without all the PR messaging.
