Eco-districts to launch work

Three Portland eco-districts got the green light in June to move forward with the help of PSU's Sustainable Neighborhood Initiative.

The initiative launched last year through PSU's Institute for Sustainable Solutions.

Now the initiative will launch a multi-year collaboration with the Foster Green EcoDistrict in Southeast Portland; the Lloyd EcoDistrict in Portland’s Lloyd District; and PSU’s SoMa EcoDistrict south of Southwest Market Street.

The initatiative will match classes, researchers and interns with neighborhood partners to work on projects such as district-scale waste reduction, neighborhood livability, energy efficiency and transportation alternatives.
