The Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) held a special hearing on the West Hayden Island Planning proposal on Nov. 15 in the Portland Building. At the evening meeting, more than 200 attendees filled a conference room and overflowed into the auditorium, where they could watch the hearings via closed circuit television. More than 70 people signed up to testify at the hearing, which lasted four-plus hours. Project advisory committee members and sovereign nations tribal representatives also provided testimony on the proposal.
Given the large number of testifiers, PSC Chair Andre Baugh announced that the hearing would be continued to Nov. 27 to allow more time for public testimony. The final report from the advisory committee is likely to be available at this hearing.
For those who could not provide oral testimony at the Nov. 15 hearing, there is still a chance to testify on Nov. 27. At the hearing, please fill out a testimony sheet as early as possible to ensure a time to testify. You can also comment in writing by submitting your written testimony to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
