  • Difference between the roles of City of Portland government, State of Oregon and Multnomah County pertaining to regulations and permissions on land use
  • Most frequently enforced zoning issues and the flexibility to proposed changes
  • How involved citizens are in these projects

Our guests will be touring the Development Services Center between 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. If staff are present at that time, please welcome them.
