The Ecodistricts Initiative
E-mail Print

 In 2009, the Portland Sustainability Institute, in partnership with the City of Portland, launched the EcoDistricts Initiative as part of the Portland region's broadening commitment to sustainability. The EcoDistricts Initiative is a comprehensive strategy to accelerate sustainable neighborhood development. PoSI drafted a Framework, released in March 2010, to clarify the value proposition, define performance areas, and outline an implementation strategy.

An EcoDistrict is a neighborhood or district with a broad commitment to accelerate neighborhood-scale sustainability. EcoDistricts commit to achieving ambitious sustainability performance goals, guiding district investments and community action, and tracking the results over time.
