Here is what "inner and outer
neighborhoods" really mean:
does you measure prevent metro from requiring an increase in density along "main streets", "corridors" and "transit corridors" where THEY PASS THROUGH "Inner or Outer Neighborhoods"?
Here is The Actual Email From Measure 26-29's Author
Here is What It Means
The measure that the Metro council referred to the ballot, 26-29, contains a provision that prohibits Metro from increasing densities in inner and outer neighborhoods, as mapped and codified by cities and counties. By definition, corridors and main streets, as well as town centers, industrial lands and regional centers, are not inner or outer neighborhoods.
I don't know if that answers your question. Please refer to the Metro website or contact Metro Counsel, Dan Cooper at 797-1528.

|Measure 26-29's language protects areas "identified in the plan solely
as Inner or Outer Neighborhoods."
Here, the author of this measure tells that "corridors and main streets, as well as town centers, industrial lands and regional centers, are not inner or outer neighborhoods."
All of these are not protected by this measure. And it is these areas that are getting most of the high density.
A second Email exchange showed that the protection afforded to the Inner or Outer Neighborhoods is almost meaningless.
