Springtime is close, and we’re ringing in the warmer season with a series of family-friendly Portland Plan Fairs. Featuring food, music, performances, games, prizes, booths and exhibitors — and even exotic animals (at the Zoo) — the fairs offer something for everyone.
The Portland Plan provides an opportunity for Portlanders to help define community priorities, guide investments and set the course for the city for the next 25 years. The plan is a multi-year, citywide project to create a strategic plan with short-term actions as well as a long-range plan for the physical, economic, social, cultural and environmental development of the city.
At the Portland Plan Fairs, we’ll be rolling out draft strategies around issues that Portlanders have indicated are their most important priorities: equity, education, economic prosperity and affordability, and healthy connected neighborhoods.
Developed with the community, these integrated strategies combine long-range policies with short-term actions to help get us started on achieving our goal of a thriving and sustainable city, with opportunity for all.
You may have read about the strategies in the latest issue of the Curbsider or at www.pdxplan.com. Now you can take advantage of another opportunity to learn more and provide feedback on this citywide plan for Portland’s future.
Colored Pencils Art Collective will give four performances at each event. Free childcare will be provided at all locations.
