How do I provide testimony?

Your input matters! There are several ways you can provide comments about the Comprehensive Plan update (proposed maps, goals and policies, and significant projects list):

  • Online through the Map App.
  • By email: Send comments to with “Comprehensive Plan Testimony” in the subject line.
  • By mail: Send a letter with your comments to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC), 1900 SW 4th Avenue, Suite 7100, Portland, OR 97201-5380.
  • In person: Attend a public hearing in the fall to offer oral testimony directly to the Planning and Sustainability Commission. Check the Comprehensive Plan calendar for dates, times and locations.

All letters, map comments and in-person testimony is shared with the PSC, who will review written comments and listen to public input and suggested changes. This feedback will help the PSC develop a better and more complete plan, which they will then recommend to City Council for adoption.

It’s important that you provide your full name and address if you are providing testimony. Comments received without your full name and mailing address will not be included in the PSC's record, and the City will not be able to notify you of City Council hearing dates. In addition, if your name does not appear in the record for this proceeding, you may be precluded from appealing the Council's final decision.
