Portland Development Commission

The Portland Development Commission is the urban renewal agency created by the city of Portland, Oregon. It promotes development, housing projects and economic development within the city's eleven urban renewal districts.

It has controversially sought to establish measurable standards for workplace diversity among its contractors.
