Presents a descriptive case study of the politics surrounding Portland Public Schools' facilities policy reform from 2000 through 2003. Portland is a revelatory case because of its history of urban growth management, neighborhood organizing, and its culture of civic innovation and intergovernmental cooperation. The research analyzes the recent and future implementation of several innovations currently being pursued by the school district as a foundation for connecting school and regional development planning. Applying theoretical models to local experience, the study predicts likely outcomes and suggests necessary actions to make ongoing cooperation successful.
