Over the past couple of years, City staff have been soliciting public feedback on the Comprehensive Plan Update. As we move into the final phases of the project, community input will be considered through the legislative process — in the form of testimony given at Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) and City Council hearings. The timeline and process chart above shows the upcoming milestones and opportunities for the public to testify.
Currently, staff are busy preparing the Proposed Plan, incorporating feedback gathered in the latter half of 2013, which is summarized in the What We Heard memo. After the Proposed Plan is released in July, Portlanders may submit testimony to the PSC at public hearings held throughout the city, beginning in late September. Informational open houses will be scheduled in July and early September to help Portlanders prepare testimony. After considering public testimony, the PSC will forward a Recommended Plan to City Council for consideration in early 2015.
