Portland has come out with changes to the city’s growth plan, the first since 1980. This coincides with a report released by the Metro council that examines what the city will look like in two decades, including new housing developments, transportation updates, and population projections.

According to Metro, the Portland metropolitan area is expected to add 725,000 people and 132,000 households by 2035, with most new construction consisting of multi-family units. The city’s Planning and Sustainability Commission will hold public meetings beginning in the fall, and hopes to make a recommendation to the City Council on the plan in the spring of 2015. A decision on whether to expand the urban growth boundary will also be made next year.
