The Planning and Sustainability Commission will hold its second public hearing on the Comprehensive Plan Proposed Draft at Parkrose High School on Tuesday, October 14 from 5 to 9 p.m. Portlanders are invited to tell the commissioners what they think about the draft 2035 plan for Portland as the city grows and changes.
By holding this (and the following) hearing out in the community, the commissioners hope to make it easier for more Portlanders to give their feedback on the proposed draft. The third hearing two weeks later will be in East Portland at the new Portland Community College campus at SE 82nd and Division. The fourth hearing will be downtown.
