The Position The Bureau of Planning & Sustainabilty (BPS) is seeking a City Planner II-Economic to join the Housing & Economic Interventions program. The program provides the essential technical assistance, economic analysis, and research expertise to guide long-range growth and development to make Portland a more prosperous, healthy, resilient and equitable city. This team provides strategic guidance for BPS, City Council and other City bureaus on critical issues affecting the growth of our city. This City Planner II - Economic position will be in on the Anti-Displacement Action Plan (ADAP) project team . The goal of ADAP is to move the City towards implementing an anti-displacement/equitable development framework, in accordance with the policies adopted in the 2035 Comprehensive Plan, that enables Portland's most vulnerable communities to root, remain, and return to the neighborhoods they desire. This team provides policy analysis, data research and community engagement in support of development of the City's anti-displacement action plan. The team is responsible for tracking real estate market, employment and development trends, evaluating and mapping changes in displacement risk, and conducting policy analysis of current and potential anti-displacement programs and actions. The team also analyzes the equity outcomes from City policy and project decisions by identifying who will benefit and/or be burdened by policy proposals and capital projects, including identifying vulnerable populations, including communities of color, and determine the potential impacts of proposals. This position works closely with city planning, housing and economic development professionals within several City agencies and Prosper Portland as well as community organizations. The central work for ADAP is to direct city policies, programs and investments to achieving the goal of a city where Black, Indigenous, and Brown people, working class and poor people, immigrants, people with disabilities, Queer and trans people, cannot only live, but thrive. The focus of the Anti-Displacement Action Plan team is to ensure that equitable development without displacement is carried out in city investments and regulatory tools to shape private development to make it so that BIPOC and low-income residents are not locked into one neighborhood and can thrive in mixed income neighborhoods. The work requires a deep understanding of racial justice and equitable development principles. BIPOC communities are the frontline for development and market pressures; cultural conflict in changing neighborhoods; and often see emerging trends before they show up in 'official' data. It is centered on outcomes for BIPOC communities who are housing and economically insecure or at risk for economic and cultural displacement as a result of generations of institutional and structural racism.
