PSC News: Youth Position Opening on Planning and Sustainability Commission

Commission seeks youth member to fill upcoming vacancy

About the Planning and Sustainability Commission
Formed in 2010, the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) has specific responsibility for the stewardship, development and maintenance of the City's Comprehensive Plan, Climate Action Plan and Zoning Code.

The PSC includes 11 volunteer members with expertise in a range of areas. The Commission’s main role is to advise City Council on Portland’s long-range goals, policies and programs for land use, planning and sustainability; they do so by holding public hearings and discussing issues and proposals. Their recommendations aim to create a more prosperous, educated, healthy, resilient and equitable city. As a group, they have a variety of viewpoints, and together they balance a variety of City goals.

Proposed Youth Position
To continue to increase the diversity of the PSC, one position will be filled by a younger community member. We are seeking someone who is enthusiastic about innovative urban solutions, new technologies, community building and efforts to make Portland a thriving, livable city for all.

The PSC reviews numerous long-range planning projects, and a youth perspective is especially important since today’s youth will be those inheriting our efforts. Engaging youth on the PSC provides a new perspective and opinion on issues that will help shape the future of the city.

Applicants should have a true personal interest and commitment to the work the PSC is responsible for overseeing. The position will have the same duties and responsibilities as all PSC members and is a voting position.

Typical time commitment includes two 4-hour monthly meetings, reading/preparation time prior to each meeting, as well as possible additional time on sub-committees.

Applicants for this position should:

  • Be able to serve a 2-year term.
  • Be between the ages of 18 and 25 at the beginning of the term.
  • Understand and support efforts to promote inclusion and equity.
  • Have knowledge of current Portland issues and/or government. (preferred)

To indicate your interest in serving on the Planning and Sustainability Commission please complete an application form and return it to the City's Office of Neighborhood Involvement at 1120 SW 4th Ave, Suite 110, Portland OR 97204. Please include a letter of recommendation from a personal or professional reference with your application. The PSC values diversity and encourages everyone who is interested in this position to apply.

Applications will be reviewed by BPS and Mayor's office staff beginning on March 10, 2017. A final selection and appointment will be made by the Mayor in April. Applications for those who apply that are not selected will be kept on file for two years for consideration when the position is again open or vacated.
