Town Center Plan
A significant portion of King City is designated as a town center and corridor in the Metro 2040 Growth Concept. It is one of seven town centers located within the southwestern portion of the Portland region. Although it is relatively small in size, it occupies an important location along the 99W corridor.
Built in the 60s and 70s, the town center area is governed by the King City Comprehensive Plan, which was developed in the 1980s, well before the Metro 2040 Growth Concept and the notion of high capacity and frequent service transit in this part of the region. Created with a residential retirement community focus, the plan emphasizes neighborhood stability, and the existing highway commercial character of 99W was simply regarded as a normal and acceptable development practice.
Considerable planning investments have been made recently by Metro, TriMet, and neighboring jurisdictions to create vibrant and successful town centers. The King City Town Center Plan, made possible by a planning grant from Metro, is intended to leverage these planning investments by refining the Metro 2040 Town Center/Corridor designation to ultimately create a more walkable commercial district that will continue to be a viable community asset.
