The Portland Plan Has Arrived!


Received this e-mail yesterday from SE Uplift with news about the Portland Plan:


The much anticipated Portland Plan Draft has been released and is available on-line for public review and testimony. I encourage you to take a look at the shorter document to at least get a feel for the Plan and its contents. You can find both the summary and the full-length documents here. If you would like to see the printed documents and are unable to print them, we have copies available at SE Uplift for review. We will also provide a copy of the summary document to each neighborhood association. Please come pick one up when you get a chance. Once you have had a chance to wrap your head around the Plan, you should tell the Planning and Sustainability Commission what you think! The PSC will be holding public hearings on the Portland Plan throughout November. The hearing schedule is listed below:

Portland Plan Hearings with the Planning and Sustainability Commission
This is your opportunity to make your voice heard about the Draft Portland Plan. Hearings are open to comment about any subject pertaining to the Portland Plan Draft. Please feel free to attend any or all of the hearings.

Tuesday, November 8th
5:30 to 9:00 PM
Jefferson High School
5210 N. Kerby, Portland OR

Tuesday, November 15th
5:30 to 9:00 PM
Parkrose High School
12003 NE Shaver Street, Portland OR

Tuesday, November 29th
5:30 to 9:00 PM
1900 SW 4th Avenue, Conference Room 2500
Portland, OR

Lastly, I am creating a “cheat-sheet” for SE Uplift Coalition neighborhoods to help you review the Plan. It will identify sections we think are especially important or interesting to our neighborhoods. This is meant to help people more efficiently read the Portland Plan and comment on sections that will directly affect your neighborhoods. We will post this on the SE Uplift website and send it out to people on our Land Use Committee listserve. If you have any questions or comments while reviewing the Portland Plan, please get in touch! I am happy to help you understand the Plan and find answers to your questions.
