The Title 3 Land data delineates areas protected by the Stream and Floodplain Protection Plan, which aims to protect the region's health and public safety by reducing flood and landslide hazards, controlling soil erosion, and reducing pollution of the region's waterways. This data specifically delineates areas impacted by Title 3 for the following purposes: 1. protect against flooding, 2. enhance water quality in the region's streams, rivers, and wetlands, and 3. protect regionally significant fish and wildlife habitat areas. Downloaded from Metro's RLIS Discovery site, 7/2/2012.

Routed regional river centerline data layer using the polylineM feature format with measures in kilometers. The stream route layer includes stream locations where, on the basis of the raster model used to create the data layer, surface water may have once existed, but is now piped, culverted or thought to be buried. Likewise the layer includes centerlines through water bodies, i.e. portions of streams that connect with larger bodies of water such as wetlands, ponds, etc. Thus many portions of a stream route feature are included primarily to complete the centerline network for routing purposes.

This geospatial dataset is a hydrologic unit boundary layer for the Watershed (10-digit) level. The dataset is a subset of the 5th level (field) hydrologic unit boundaries from the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) layer for Oregon. Hydrologic units in the data set represent drainage areas delineated to the 5th level drainage systems. Their boundaries are defined by hydrographic and topographic criteria that delineate an area of land upstream from a specific point on a river, stream, or similar surface waters. Boundaries within the this data set were delineated by Pacific Northwest (PNW) Hydrography Framework Partners and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to meet state requirements and to contribute to...

This geospatial dataset is a hydrologic unit boundary layer for the Sub-basin (8-digit) level. The dataset is a subset of the 4th level (8-digit) hydrologic unit boundaries of the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) layer for Oregon. It was created by dissolving boundaries from the finer resolution hydrologic units (those of the 5th or 10-digit level) to create these broader boundaries. Boundaries within the this data set were delineated by Pacific Northwest (PNW) Hydrography Framework Partners and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to meet state requirements and to contribute to the national WBD repository. To meet these goals, the WBD must adhere to the "Federal Standards for Delineation of Hydrologic...

The political boundary showing the area that is subject to Metro's regulatory and taxing authority and the area that has elected representation on the Metro Council. The Oregon Legislature drew the Metro boundary that covers the Portland metropolitan area. Downloaded from Metro's RLIS Discovery site 7/2/2012.

This file contains the history of the current urban growth boundary for the Portland Metro region. Areas that were added to the UGB are attributed with the year they were added. The data only contains additions for the current UGB; areas that were added to the UGB, and then subsequently removed, are not part of this data. Downloaded from Metro's RLIS Discovery site 7/2/2012.

The Title 4 Land data delineates the following 3 areas where landuse is restricted: 1. In Regionally Significant Industrial Areas (Plan = RSI), non-industrial uses are limited to: Retail uses less than 20,000 square feet and amounting to only 5 percent of the contiguous Regionally Significant Industrial Area. Commercial office uses that are not accessory to the industrial uses with the exception of large corporate headquarters. And uses necessary to serve the needs of businesses and employees of the Regionally Significant Industrial Area. 2. In Industrial Areas (Plan = IND), non-industrial uses are limited to less than 20,000 square feet and amount to 10 percent of the Industrial Area. 3. In Employment Areas (Plan...

This geospatial dataset is a hydrologic unit boundary layer for the Sub-watershed (12-digit) level. The dataset is a subset of the 6th level (field) hydrologic unit boundaries from the Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) layer for Oregon. Hydrologic units in the data set represent drainage areas delineated to the 6th level drainage systems. Their boundaries are defined by hydrographic and topographic criteria that delineate an area of land upstream from a specific point on a river, stream, or similar surface waters. Boundaries within the this data set were delineated by Pacific Northwest (PNW) Hydrography Framework Partners and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) to meet state requirements and to contribute...

A record peak flow in February of 1996 caused the Willamette River and its major tributaries to flood. This map was created to delineate the inundated areas near the mainstem and major tributaries of the Willamette River. Complete FGDC metadata is available from US Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District. Updated through the Goal 5 process, the State of Oregon mandate for identifying areas for potential habitat protection. Downloaded from Metro's RLIS Discovery site 7/2/2012.

Executive SummaryPrior to November 2010, when The Intertwine Alliance launched the Regional Conservation Strategy (RCS) and Biodiversity Guide (RBG) efforts for the Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region, conservation priorities in the metropolitan region were identified at a broad regional scale that generally excluded urban areas (e.g., state conservation strategies and Willamette Synthesis); were regional but based solely on expert opinion (e.g., Natural Features); and consisted of localized priorities that abruptly ended at jurisdiction boundaries. The goal of the RCS was to fill in the gaps between broad and local scales of information related to conservation priorities. RCS members envisioned a data-driven...

The boundary controls urban expansion onto farm and forest lands. Metro is responsible for managing the Portland metropolitan region's urban growth boundary and is required by state law to have a 20-year supply of land for future residential development inside the boundary.
