Apply to be a member of the Planning and Sustainability Commission

Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission is looking to fill vacancies this Spring

**Updated May 20, 2019: The Mayor has selected his three nominees for this PSC recruitment, which will be confirmed at City Council on Wednesday, May 22, at 10:10 a.m. Time Certain.**

The Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) includes 11 volunteer members with expertise in a range of areas. As a group, they balance a variety of City goals. We are currently seeking a member to fill a vacant position on the Commission.

The PSC has specific responsibility for the stewardship, development and maintenance of the City's Comprehensive Plan, Climate Action Plan and Zoning Code. Their recommendations to City Council on Portland’s long-range goals, policies and programs for land use, planning and sustainability aim to create a more prosperous, educated, healthy, resilient and equitable city.

The work of the PSC is to:

  • Advise City Council and City bureaus on social, economic and environmental issues as well as long-range development in Portland; and on the development and maintenance of the City’s Comprehensive Plan and implementation measures.
  • Ensure sustainability principles and practices and equity considerations are integrated into policy, planning and development decisions.
  • Advise City Council, as well as City bureaus and other agencies, on projects and proposals that significantly affect the city.

More information about the PSC.

Application Process

As the Zoning Code requires, the membership of the PSC “should include broad representation of Portland’s community and reflect the dynamic nature of this changing city.” To balance and diversify the current composition of the PSC, at this time we are especially interested in adding a member who has experience and knowledge about innovative urban solutions, new technologies, community building, affordable housing, green building or efforts to make Portland a thriving, livable city for all.

Typical time commitment for PSC members includes two 3-hour monthly meetings, reading/preparation time prior to each meeting, as well as possible additional time on sub-committees. Because this appointment will fill a position that is mid-term, this position will have approximately nine months of service at the initial confirmation, with the option for the Commissioner to serve an additional two 4-year terms.

To indicate your interest in serving on the Planning and Sustainability Commission, please review the position announcement and submit your application.

The PSC values diversity and encourages everyone who is interested in this position to apply. Applications for those who apply that are not selected will be kept on file for two years for consideration when a position is again open or vacated.
