Better Housing by Design testimony (written) deadline extended to Monday, June 25 at 5 p.m.

The Better Housing by Design project is proposing new rules to make housing in Portland’s multi-dwelling zones more livable, healthy and connected to other streets and transit.

To give community members more time to consider the proposals, the date for submitting written testimony on the Better Housing by Design Proposed Draft has been extended to Monday, June 25 at 5 p.m. The Planning and Sustainability public hearing for the Proposed Draft remains scheduled for Tuesday, June 12

You can submit written testimony to the Planning and Sustainability Commission by June 25, 2018, at 5 p.m.


Via the Map App:

Select Better Housing by Design and click on the "Testify" button. Testifying in the Map App is as easy as sending an email. And once you press “submit,” you can see your testimony in the Testimony Reader in real time. You can also read other people’s testimony.
