This map illustrates the investment area of the 42nd Avenue Neighborhood Prosperity Initiative. Properties resting within this boundary are eligible for improvement funds as determined by Our 42nd Avenue, a participatory and community-led organization. Community members recommended this investment boundary to be approved by the Portland Development Commission and Portland City Council. Together, our community created a map that includes all of the district’s eligible commercial properties in the investment area — this is the result of a collaborative effort guided by the community. The blue line indicates the NPI investment area. (download the PDF here)
