Through an investment of more than $200 million, the Portland Mall Revitalization Project introduced light-rail service to the Portland Mall. At the completion of this project, the Portland Mall was returned to its original architectural excellence and grace. The long-term benefits of this investment are realized only through ongoing stewardship and timely responses to physical, social and environmental changes in the area. Recognizing this need, a group of private-sector business leaders partnered with the City of Portland and TriMet to form Portland Mall Management, Inc. (PMMI), a 501(c) public-benefit corporation.
PMMI's mission is to bring together community stakeholders to collaborate in maintaining the Portland Mall, keeping it the business-friendly and pedestrian-oriented environment it was built as, and avoiding its past history of neglect and deterioration.
PMMI is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of business and property owners as well as representatives from the Portland Bureau of Transportation, TriMet and the commissioner of the Bureau of Transportation's office. PMMI board meetings are open to the public, and more information is available on the Events page.
Funding for the services PMMI provides comes through a series of agreements between TriMet, the City of Portland, the Portland Business Alliance and Portland State University. For fiscal year 2015-16 PMMI's budget is $1.82 million, and that amount is supplemented by in-kind services provided by the Portland Business Alliance and Portland State University.
