About 50 people attended last week’s Comprehensive Plan Update workshop in Southwest Portland’s Multnomah Village, where they learned about proposed goals and policies for transportation, housing, urban design, economic development and the environment, among others. Breakout sessions allowed participants to give feedback on how to spend our limited infrastructure dollars, where population and employment growth should go, how to accommodate industry and environmentally sensitive areas, and what Portland’s future neighborhoods and business districts should look like.
The Infrastructure Investments breakout session allowed participants to spend a hypothetical $100 among five areas – both before and after a group discussion.
More Workshops Ahead
If you missed the Southwest workshop or you’re waiting for one closer to home, here are six more opportunities to participate in the Comprehensive Plan Update – including one tonight in North Portland:
Portlanders can also fill out a survey at the workshops or online. Give us your advice on five sticky policy issues in the Comprehensive Plan Working Draft.
With your feedback on the Working Draft Part 1, the Comprehensive Plan Update team will revise the goals and policies and develop draft maps and a capital project list to share with the public in the fall.
