MAXaction's goal is to build a network of engaged partners to work alongside TriMet to develop the MAX in east Portland as a community asset.
The East Portland Action Plan (EPAP) acknowledges community strengths and supports existing efforts, while looking strategically at opportunities to improve livability and at policies to address some of the challenges facing East Portland.

The Comprehensive Plan Map of the Outer Southeast Community Plan is part of the city's Comprehensive Plan. However, the Vision Plan Map and the Action Charts for each of the neighborhoods and business areas are not part of the Comprehensive Plan.
The Vision Plan Map is designed to show how the various themes of the Outer Southeast Community relate to each other. The Action Charts for Hazelwood, and those of the other neighborhoods and business districts in the area, are lists of ideas for capital projects and on-going projects. They are considered "a starting place for revitalization of the Outer Southeast Community" and will likely be "adjusted" over time.
