In July of 2015 the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) Recommended a New Comprehensive Plan to City Council. This is the most significant update of the Comprehensive Plan since the original plan was adopted in 1980.
The PSC made its recommendation after considering a 2014 staff proposal as well as more than 4,000 public comments over the course of a year. The original staff recommendation was based on an earlier 2013 working draft, produced in collaboration with eight advisory committees in 2012 and 2013.
After receiving the PSC recommendation, City Council held five public hearings. City Council members received more than 2,500 comments via email, letters, verbal testimony and an online Map App. In February 2016, Council members each submitted potential amendments they wanted to discuss. City Council has scheduled public hearings in April to hear public testimony about these potential amendments.
Suggested amendments from the Mayor and City Commissioners, as well as minor technical amendments suggested by City staff, to be considered before Council's final vote on the Comprehensive Plan.
