How to give testimony
You can share your feedback on the plan with City Council in several ways:
1. Testify in person at the hearing (see details below)
2. Submit written testimony:
Attn: Council Clerk
1221 SW Fourth Avenue, Room 140
Portland, OR 97204
3. FAX or email comments to 503-823-4571 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Written testimony must be received by the time of the hearing and must include your name and address.
Guidance for testifying in person
- Arrive early to sign up and get instructions on how testimony will be heard.
- The normal allotted time to testify is 3 minutes; however, it may be necessary to limit the time to 2 minutes or less if there are many people testifying.
- Testifiers can provide the commissioners with printed materials. Please provide eight copies to the Council Clerk.
- Testifiers are allowed to show Power Point presentations or other slides, but they must use the laptop provided at the testimony table and advance their own slides within the allotted 2-3 minutes. It’s helpful to submit files before the hearing as there is usually not enough time to load them and get copies for the record once public testimony begins.

Southeast Quadrant Plan – Recommended Draft
The plan is provided as a large ~28MB file; it is also divided into chapters. The same material can be found in both. If you are having trouble downloading the larger file, please try downloading the individual sections.
Once the plan is adopted by resolution, it will be integrated with the N/NE and West Quadrant plans and other input into a Central City 2035 Plan, which will then be the subject of public hearings before both the Planning and Sustainability Commission and City Council in 2016.
