Okay, on this occasion the BRITISH Course will provide a description of a city in the United States. The city we will be discussing is Portland City.

Portland City

Portland (/ˈpɔːrtlənd/, PORT-lənd) is a port city in the Pacific Northwest and the largest city in the U.S. state of Oregon. Situated at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia rivers, Portland is the county seat of Multnomah County, the most populous county in Oregon. As of 2020, Portland had a population of 652,503, making it the 26th-most populated city in the United States, the sixth-most populous on the West Coast, and the second-most populous in the Pacific Northwest, after Seattle. Approximately 2.5 million people live in the Portland metropolitan statistical area, making it the 25th most populous in the United States. About half of Oregon’s population resides within the Portland metropolitan area.

Named after Portland, Maine, the Oregon settlement began to be populated in the 1840s, near the end of the Oregon Trail. Its water access provided convenient transportation of goods, and the timber industry was a major force in the city’s early economy. At the turn of the 20th century, the city had a reputation as one of the most dangerous port cities in the world, a hub for organized crime and racketeering. After the city’s economy experienced an industrial boom during World War II, its hard-edged reputation began to dissipate. Beginning in the 1960s, Portland became noted for its growing liberal and progressive political values, earning it a reputation as a bastion of counterculture.

The city operates with a commission-based government, guided by a mayor and four commissioners, as well as Metro, the only directly elected metropolitan planning organization in the United States. Its climate is marked by warm, dry summers and cool, rainy winters. This climate is ideal for growing roses, and Portland has been called the “City of Roses” for over a century.

Terjemahan

Portland (/ˈpɔːrtlənd/, PORT-lənd) adalah sebuah kota pelabuhan di Pacific Northwest dan kota terbesar di negara bagian Oregon, AS. Terletak di pertemuan sungai Willamette dan Columbia, Portland adalah ibu kota County Multnomah County, county terpadat di Oregon. Pada tahun 2020, Portland memiliki populasi 652.503, menjadikannya kota terpadat ke-26 di Amerika Serikat, terpadat keenam di Pantai Barat, dan terpadat kedua di Pacific Northwest, setelah Seattle. Sekitar 2,5 juta orang tinggal di wilayah statistik metropolitan Portland, menjadikannya yang terpadat ke-25 di Amerika Serikat. Sekitar setengah dari populasi Oregon tinggal di wilayah metropolitan Portland.

Dinamai Portland, Maine, pemukiman Oregon mulai dihuni pada tahun 1840-an, di dekat ujung Oregon Trail. Akses airnya menyediakan transportasi barang yang nyaman, dan industri kayu merupakan kekuatan utama dalam ekonomi awal kota. Pada pergantian abad ke-20, kota ini memiliki reputasi sebagai salah satu kota pelabuhan paling berbahaya di dunia, pusat kejahatan terorganisir dan pemerasan. Setelah ekonomi kota mengalami ledakan industri selama Perang Dunia II, reputasinya yang keras mulai menghilang. Dimulai pada 1960-an, Portland menjadi terkenal karena nilai-nilai politik liberal dan progresifnya yang berkembang, membuatnya mendapatkan reputasi sebagai benteng budaya tandingan.

Kota ini beroperasi dengan pemerintahan berbasis komisi, dipandu oleh seorang walikota dan empat komisaris, serta Metro, satu-satunya organisasi perencanaan metropolitan yang dipilih langsung di Amerika Serikat. Iklimnya ditandai dengan musim panas yang hangat dan kering serta musim dingin yang sejuk dan hujan. Iklim ini ideal untuk menanam mawar, dan Portland disebut sebagai “Kota Mawar” selama lebih dari satu abad.
