As part of our services offered to customers, the bureau has developed a Speakers Program designed to provide public information about BDS programs, services and development-related codes.
As part of this outreach Section Manager Kimberly Parsons partnered with the Marshall Park Neighborhood Association to deliver a presentation on the Environmental Overlay Zones. This presentation was an introduction to the purpose, regulations and process of environmental review for property with environmental zoning.
This was a well attended presentation where the members had the opportunity to ask many questions and gain clarity on the process and how the regulations are applied in their neighborhood. We were also able to present information about resources available to them on www.portlandonline.com/bds.
On behalf of the bureau, we would like to thank Marshall Park Neighborhood Association member Karen Bersack for inviting us to share information and we look forward to a continued partnership.
