Public invited to submit written testimony on a limited number of Map Refinement Project Amendments

On April 25, 2018, the Portland City Council held a deliberation session on their 52 proposed amendments to the Map Refinement Project. At the Council session, acting Council President Commissioner Fish invited those in attendance the opportunity to give in person testimony. Nine individuals gave in person testimony on Amendment #19. Prior to the Council session, 235 items of testimony were on the Council amendments.

At Commissioner Fish’s suggestion, Council agreed to re-open the public record for written testimony – on a limited number of amendments (#12, #17, #19 and #53) only – until 8:00 a.m. on Monday, April 30, 2018. Testifiers may submit their testimony through the Map App, by email or by hand delivery.

Read the Subset of Council Amendments. In any written testimony, please reference the amendment number and/or address.
