Planning and Sustainability Commission recommends adoption of Portland Plan background reports and maps

Portland's Planning and Sustainability Commission voted today (Dec. 14, 2010) to accept the maps and reports that comprise a planning inventory. This inventory will not be fully complete until spring of 2011, but the Commission viewed it as complete and accurate enough to proceed with the next step—a planning analysis for the city.

The commission requested that information on jobs, employment land and air quality (particularly toxic hot spots) feature more prominently in the final inventory. It also requested that staff proactively notify and engage the Land Use Committee of each neighborhood association to get their feedback prior to further action in the spring and suggested that staff organize a couple of information sessions before the spring hearing series, specifically to provide more information on both air quality and jobs/employment land availability issues.

Panelists Jonathan Oster from OPAL, Polo Catalani from the City's Office of Human Relations and the Urban League's Marcus Mundy shared the stage and answered questions from the audience about how to ensure more people of color can influence the civic decision-making process.
