Comprehensive Plan & Zoning Ordinance Update
Borough Council of the Borough of Portland
The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission prepared the current Portland Comprehensive Plan and zoning ordinance in the 1960s. In recent years, the Borough secured its first industrial park and centeralized sewerage system. The Borough would like to update its comprehensive plan and zoning ordinance as well as cooperate with the private sector to improve the downtown. We are at an eastern entranceway to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Portland is an active member of the Slate Belt Council of Governments. The Borough and this region value economic development, respect the environment and where possible celebrate cultural heritage..
