As part of the implementation of the Neighborhood Economic Development (NED) Strategy, the City of Portland and Portland Development Commission have established the Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative (NPI). The goal of the NPI is to strengthen the economic competitiveness of neighborhood business districts through community-planned and community-implemented actions and projects.
Specifically, NPI areas will focus on:
- Increasing the visibility of the business district
- Growing more jobs
- Strengthening existing businesses
- Filling vacant spaces
