Neighborhood Centers


A neighborhood center is a hub of small-scale retail and commercial uses that offer day-to-day goods and services used by its surrounding residents.

The hub is supported by residents within a convenient 5 minute walk (1/4 mile), a 5 minute bike ride (1 mile),or a short auto trip. The success of the hub and surroundings is determined by the location and arrangement of homes and businesses and the design of the streets.

The Neighborhood Centers project is part of our Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) planning effort to plan for safe, walkable neighborhoods within five minutes of local neighborhood shops and businesses.
