Climate Change Preparation Strategy: Open for Public Comment


Climate Change Preparation Strategy CoverWe're pleased to announce that the City of Portland and Multnomah County’s new draft Climate Change Preparation Strategy is open for comment. Technical experts, organizations, businesses and members of the public are encouraged to provide feedback on the documents.

Portland City Council and Multnomah County commissioners will consider adopting the documents later this year.

The draft materials describe how climate change will affect the region and what actions are proposed to improve resiliency and to protect communities.

How are we going to deal with hotter, drier summers, and warmer, wetter winters?

residential ecoroofStrategies include reducing climate impacts on vulnerable populations, and using more green infrastructure, such as ecoroofs, green streets, and trees to reduce the urban heat island effect.  One tool could be adopting development performance standards similar to Seattle's Green Factor.  Other strategies center around further protecting and restoring our natural systems, like streams, forests and floodplains. 

Many of these strategies are already being implemented in Portland to manage stormwater, improve water quality, and store carbon, but in the face of climate change, we may need to do more. 


Visit: for more information about the strategy and how to comment. Comments are due by April 11, 2014.

The Climate Preparation Strategy is linked to the City of Portland and Multnomah County Climate Action Plan, which integrates the City and County’s work to slow the effects of climate change while also preparing for the impacts that we will experience. Portland and Multnomah County are currently in the process of updating the Climate Action Plan, which was originally adopted in 2009. Visit Portland’s Climate Action website to learn more about the Climate Action Plan update project and other existing climate efforts.
