Final City Council hearing on Comp Plan amendments on April 20

On Thursday, April 14, Portland City Council held its first public hearing on a set of amendments to the draft 2035 Comprehensive Plan. The amendments were “sponsored” by the Commissioners based on public testimony on the Recommended Draft plan as well as their own interests and concerns.

More than 100 Portlanders showed up to share their feedback on the amendments with City Council. Testimony focused on topics ranging from open data, the proposed conversion of Broadmoor golf course to industrial land, and other proposed Comp Plan Map changes. A significant portion of the testimony was about the “middle housing” concept, an amendment sponsored by Mayor Charlie Hales.

The final scheduled hearing on the Comp Plan amendments is Wednesday, April 20 from 2 to 5 p.m. in Council Chambers, City Hall, 1221 SW 4th Ave. Please check the Auditor’s website for more information and to confirm details. People interested in providing testimony may begin signing up one hour before the hearing. Testimony is limited to two minutes per person.

Next Steps

At the end of the hearing, the Mayor will close the hearing and testimony (unless it is extended), and Council will begin work sessions on the Comp Plan amendments the following week on April 28. Final vote on the City’s new Comprehensive Plan is expected in June 2016.
