BPS E-News Issue 4
The Cully-Concordia Community Action Plan is a partnership between the City, Portland Public Schools and the community to improve the quality of life for children and families in the Cully and Concordia neighborhoods. The Portland City Council approved an assessment report and action plan in November 2008, and the next November City staff and community partners presented an Annual Report to City Council to share the successes of the year and present the group’s activities for 2010.
One success story is the establishment of a SUN Community School Program at Harvey Scott School for the 2009/10 school year. An activity for 2010 is to complete an Early Childhood Development Needs Assessment for the area.
The Cully-Concordia Community Action Plan focuses on four goal areas: education, economic development, infrastructure and community services, and community building. There is widespread community involvement on this initiative from residents, business people, local schools, institutions and non-profit organizations. For more information, contact Debbie Bischoff at 503.823.6946.

BPS has found social media — have you? Several programs and projects within our bureau are learning that social media can be an effective communications tool to reach out to more residents and businesses. In recent months, Portland Plan’s Facebook and Twitter accounts have helped to spread the word about Portland Plan workshops, survey opportunities and related reading. BPS’ sustainable food program has promoted the Urban Growth Bounty 2010 educational series, and the BEST Business Center and Green Building Hotline keep their “friends” informed about the latest news from their programs.
