South Waterfront Central District is a 38-acre neighborhood which balances residential and retail development with cutting-edge, sustainable transportation options. Being a densely developed community with limited off-street parking, offering an array of transportation options will be paramount in the districtӳ success. Recognizing this idea, the City of Portland, Metro and the South Waterfront community collaborated in 2011 to create the South Waterfront Transportation Management Association.
The South Waterfront Transportation Management Association (TMA) is an extension of South Waterfront Community Relations. The mission of the TMA is to support and promote the economic vitality and livability of the South Waterfront District through residential and business-supported programs promoting efficient, balanced transportation systems.
The South Waterfront TMA is comprised of neighborhood residents, businesses, and developers, and is supported by the South Waterfront Community Association, Atwater Place, and Metro.
The TMA’s goal of reducing the district’s share of vehicle miles traveled by 30 percent by 2030 is in alignment with the following plans:
