City Council adopts the SE 122nd Ave Rezoning Project on October 17
Two events in December will launch early planning work for the Goose Hollow area of the Central City
The City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) is gearing up for the West Quadrant Plan process, which will provide detailed planning for Central City areas on the west side of the Willamette River. This effort is part of the broader Central City 2035 project to update the 1988 Central City Plan.
As part of the West Quadrant Plan, BPS is doing early planning work in a few areas, including Goose Hollow. This area was chosen for early work to build off the efforts of the Vision Realization Committee of the Goose Hollow Foothills League, the local neighborhood association. This group has been meeting for over a year and is now teaming up with BPS to jumpstart the Goose Hollow process. Two events will be held in December and will bring together the community and stakeholders to identify issues and develop concepts. This collaborative effort will be looped back into theWest Quadrant Plan process in early 2013.

City’s programs protect and enhance the ecological condition of 1,000s of acres
On Wednesday Nov. 28, 2012, at 2:30 p.m. (time certain) the Portland City Council will hold a public hearing to consider the City's request to Metro for determination of substantial compliance with Title 13, "Nature in Neighborhoods." The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability developed this request in collaboration with the Bureaus of Environmental Services, Parks and Recreation, and Development Services.
Existing City regulatory and non-regulatory programs form the basis for the City's request. These programs protect and enhance the ecological condition of thousands of acres of regionally significant natural resources in Portland. No new regulations are proposed as part of this compliance request. The Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) has endorsed the request and recommends that the Council direct its submittal to Metro. The PSC also recommends that the City enter into a separate voluntary intergovernmental agreement (IGA) with Metro as a statement of mutual intent to continue our watershed health-related efforts and to collaborate on natural resource issues of regional concern.
BPS E-News, November 2012
The Thanksgiving holiday is a time for reflection. At BPS we are thankful for our many partners and their collaboration, great ideas and passion for our local community. Portland's tireless volunteers and organizations have helped the City with their immense expertise and commitment.
This year, hundreds of Portlanders have been involved with BPS projects and policy development to make them a success. A handful of examples include
Speaking of Fix-It Fairs, we have organized these neighborhood events for nearly 25 years! The fairs are a fun way to help Portlanders save energy and money, reduce toxics, learn how to do minor household repairs, and fix healthy, inexpensive meals. These popular fairs wouldn’t be possible without help from the community — event volunteers and sponsors alike.
We give thanks to our Fix-It Fair partners: Energy Trust of Oregon, Pacific Power, Portland Housing Bureau, Portland General Electric and Legacy Emmanuel Medical Center, and all our amazing volunteers.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season with family and friends.
All the best,
Bureau of Planning and Sustainability
