Thousands of Portlanders may receive — or have already received — notices regarding proposed land use changes that could affect the permissible uses of their property.
The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability recently sent out the first notices to owners of property proposed to be rezoned for employment. Subsequent mailings will go to campus institutions and nearby residents, property owners in mixed use zones, and others whose property may have a proposed land use designation or zone that is new or different from the current one.
Along with information on the proposed changes, the notices tell property owners how they can learn more, get answers to their questions via the Comprehensive Plan Helpline, or provide formal testimony to the Planning and Sustainability Commission or City Council.
If you haven’t received one of these notices yet, but are curious about proposed changes, visit the all-new Map App, which allows you to browse or search by specific address and view any proposed changes to your property.
And feel free to call the Comprehensive Plan Helpline at 503-823-0195 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We’re here to help!
