On Thursday, November 17, 2016, the Portland City Council held a public hearing on their amendments to the 2035 Comprehensive Plan Early Implementation Projects. They heard testimony about the Hayden Island mobile home park, height in the NW Alphabet District, drive-throughs and parking minimums, among other issues. The Commission will discuss the testimony in a special meeting on November 22 at 9 a.m., then vote to adopt the final package on December 14 and December 21.
The Early Implementation Package is the final phase of the Comprehensive Plan Update project. Last year, Council adopted new goals, policies and a land use map to guide growth and development for the next 20 years. Now they are poised to adopt a new Zoning Map and Code.
