Checking in on the Portland Plan ProcessJanuary 14, 2010
A few updates as the effort keeps on keeping on:
- The city-wide compilation of survey results from the seven Portland Plan workshops is now available online. Over 900 people attended the workshops. While they were NOT representative of the City as a whole (the attendees were less diverse and more affluent than the overall population), the input of 900 motivated citizens is always informative. Transit, walkability and access to greenspaces and trails scored high.
- You can still take the survey online! The Mayor has extended the deadline to March 31.
- A new flyer is available for the three Planning Commission Hearings on the “existing conditions” that will inform the Portland Plan. While each hearing has a topic, we want to be clear that citizens are welcome to discuss any Portland Plan issue at any one of the three hearings. And City Council won’t formally adopt existing condition findings until closer to the end of the year, so don’t panic! Keep the conversation going… the first hearing is January 26th at 6pm.
