Get Your Geek On

March 9, 2010

For those of you who are pining for the last set of Portland Plan workshops and can’t wait for round 2 (more on that later) we’ve got a fix for you.

There’s a technical team for each of the 9 subject areas in the Portland Plan, and they’re holding workshop meetings that you can sit in on, and informally discuss the topics with the team.

Here’s the full set:

To prepare for Phase II, we have established nine Technical Action Groups (TAGs), one for each of the Portland Plan action areas. The TAGs include staff from City bureaus and our 19 partner agencies. They have synthesized the thousands of comments from the public meetings and surveys, the data from the VisionPDX process and information from the Portland Plan Background reports (http://www.portlandonline.com/portlandplan/index.cfm?c=51427). The result of this work will be the basis for the information shared during the Phase II workshops in April and May.

The TAGs are convening additional work sessions during March to review information that will help shape the development of the Phase II workshops. Each of you has special expertise in different arenas. We would appreciate your involvement in these workshops to help us set direction for the next steps for the Portland Plan.

Please join us at one or more of the meetings listed below. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves!
