Alert! → Portland Ezones Map Correction Initiative

The Portland Ezones initiative is finalizing September 10, 2021. The new computer mapping program's algorithm may miss significant water features such as small, seasonal, intermittent streams, and small tributary streams.

  1. About Ezones initiative here: [ABOUT]

    P zone is the highest level of protection. C zone is a lower level of protection that limits but does not prohibit new development.

  2. Check properties with the interactive maps. [MAP] See instructions below.

    Link only shows proposed ezones. It does not automatically turn on existing ezones to compare what is changing. Instructions:

    Click on 'View the interactive map'
    Enter property address
    Click on upper right icon with three horizontal lines
    Turn on 'Existing Environmental Overlay'
    This will compare the proposed ezones overlay to the existing ezones overlay.

     Green solid = current Protection P zone
     Brown stripes = current Conservation C zone
     Green stripes = proposed Protection P zone
     Brown stripes = proposed Conservation C zone
     Green solid + Brown stripes = P zones changing to C zones

  3. If a missing water resource is found on or near your property or public right-of-way, request a site visit to re-evaluate the property! [503-823-4225]

  4. Link to [Planning and Sustainability Commission] to view future meetings and prior meetings.

Nextdoor is a private 'social network' for Collins View and nearby 'Hoods

Thousands of folks across many neighborhoods are set up on Nextdoor. You can set up your login by validating your street address — then you can view and participate. There is a lot of non-association chatter on NextDoor, so it is difficult to use for official business. Our 'signal' often gets lost in the 'noise'.

See our Sign-Up instructions [LINK]. Thereafter, login into Next Door, and you'll land in the Collins View context. (Our Instructions page also has a mini-orientation.)
