Open Houses Designed to Help Portlanders Prepare for Upcoming Public Hearings on the Draft 2035 Comprehensive Plan

CPU image

The Comprehensive Plan Proposed Draft has been available for public review and comment since July 21. We hope you’ve had a chance to look at this long-range plan for Portland’s future growth and development and how it might affect you, your property and/or your neighborhood. The proposed land use changes are intended to create a healthier, safer, more connected city.

See the draft 2035 Comprehensive Plan and explore the Map App.

Want to learn more about the proposal, need help with the Map App or want tips for testifying? Come to an open house!

Portlanders are invited to submit comments on the proposed goals, policies and land use changes to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC). 

To help community members learn more about the draft 2035 plan and prepare their testimony, the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is holding three open houses in the next two weeks. These are intended to give the public a chance to talk to a planner, find out more about the proposed land use changes and get tips for delivering effective testimony.

What happens next?
The Planning and Sustainability Commission will listen to what the public has to say about the proposal at the public hearings mentioned above. After discussion and deliberation, they will make a recommendation to City Council early in 2015. City Council is expected to hold hearings and vote on the new Comprehensive Plan by mid-2015. They will likely hold hearings and vote on corresponding zoning changes by the end of 2015. After City Council approval, the new plan must be approved (“acknowledged”) by the State of Oregon. The new Comprehensive Plan Map will be the basis for future updates to the City’s Zoning Map and Zoning Code.
