These are large scale proposed plans for Planned Mixed Use (PMU) in unincorporated areas of east Clackamas County, including the area around Clackamas Town Center. The description of this proposed Clackamas Regional Center PMU states:
"The Clackamas Regional Center area, comprising about 2,100 acres, is a vital and growing part of the County. It is a major hub for the residential and business communities in the southeast Portland metropolitan area. The area has grown rapidly as urban services have been provided, and is poised for even more growth. Forecasts indicate that there will be 36,500 jobs within the study area and 7,600 housing units by the year 2017. This will about double the amounts present in 1994. As this change occurs over the next twenty years, the area is envisioned to transition to even more intensive uses, more mixes of land uses, better access for all modes of transportation and a more attractive visual character.
The Clackamas Regional Center Area Design Plan sets the framework for decision-making to meet the challenge of planning for growth and guiding the area to a preferred future identified by citizens, the business community, and public service providers."
