The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has published a set of Comprehensive Plan staff reports in preparation for the March 10, 2015, Planning and Sustainability Commission work session. The reports include staff-recommended amendments to the Comprehensive Plan Proposed Draft, in response to public testimony received to date.

Reports available for the March 10 meeting are:

Work Session #4

The meeting starts at 12:30 p.m., and the final agenda will be posted on the PSC calendar approximately one week before the meeting. The public is invited to attend; however, this is a work session for commissioners, so no public testimony will be taken during this or any other work session.

The PSC will, however, accept written comments on the Proposed Draft until March 13, 2015. Community members are encouraged to review the work session schedule and send their comments about a particular topic to the commission at least eight days before that issue will be discussed. This will allow commissioners time to review relevant testimony before each meeting.

Bureau of Planning and Sustainability Staff Reports Available for February 24 Comprehensive Plan Work Sessions

Planning and Sustainability Commission to discuss the David Douglas School District and Community Involvement policies at February 24 work session

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has published a set of Comprehensive Plan staff reports in preparation for the Feb. 24, 2015, Planning and Sustainability Commission work session. The reports include staff-recommended amendments to the Comprehensive Plan Proposed Draft, in response to public testimony received to date.

The staff reports now available for public review are:

At the February 24 meeting, the PSC will hold a work session on the above topics from 3 - 5 p.m., followed by a public hearing of the Transportation System Plan (from 5 - 9 p.m.), also posted as a staff report to the commission.

Staff reports or memos for subsequent PSC work sessions will be available approximately two weeks prior to each one.

Work Session #3

The February 24 work session on the Comprehensive Plan Proposed Draft (#3) will be held at 1900 SW 4th Ave, Rm 2500. The meeting starts at 3 p.m., and the final agenda will be posted on the PSC calendar approximately one week before the meeting. The public is invited to attend; however, this is a work session for commissioners, so no public testimony will be taken during this or any other work session. However, the public may testify on the TSP, starting at 5 p.m.

The PSC will continue to accept written comments on the Proposed Draft until March 13, 2015. The public is encouraged to submit testimony as early as possible, but the commissioners will be considering all testimony received through the closing date. Commissioners are community volunteers so they need sufficient time to review such a large volume of testimony. 

Testimony is cataloged, scanned and batched together for delivery to the PSC regularly (approximately every two weeks). Staff then prepares reports that summarize the testimony to date, provide preliminary recommendations on the upcoming work session topics and suggest issues requiring further discussion/deliberation by the commissioners. Due to the quantity of testimony received, there may be a short lag between when a letter is submitted and when it is addressed in the relevant staff report.

Ask the Curbside Hotline Operator: Who picks up my garbage?

Curbside collection containers

Q: Who picks up my garbage – the City of Portland or a private company?

A: Private companies provide curbside collection to households in franchised areas of the city. The company you have depends on where you live. The City oversees these companies and sets city-wide rates and service options.

Whether you are buying a house for the first time, or moving across town, find the company that services your area online and sign up for free email reminders at www.garbagedayreminders.com.

For future reference, the name and phone number of your garbage and recycling company is on your bill or the side of the green composting and blue recycling roll carts.
