What is infill development? See infill SPACE, THE FINAL FRONTIER.

There is a significant amount of vacant land in Portland. Infill development maximizes existing public facilities. Infill is beneficial to the elderly, young, and other residents who cannot drive or who do not own a car.

When Portlanders live close to their jobs, shopping and entertainment, vehicle trips can be eliminated. Many of Portland’s neighborhoods have vacant lots within walking distance of parks, schools and shopping. These neighborhoods have existing infrastructure and infill development creates little or no expansion of infrastructure.

Developing your vacant lot can help reduce urban sprawl and protect green areas and agricultural land.

As Jean Luc would say, Engage!
