Meet the Code Change Committee

Meet the Code Change Committee (Committee 3.96)

Committee 3.96 is comprised of a rich cross-section of Portlanders that brought together their collective experiences, expertise and issues relevant to all Portlanders. Our goal was to ensure that the process of revising the City Code Chapter 3.96 was shaped by engaging multiple perspectives from across our city.

Throughout this process, Portlanders were invited (in many formats and languages) to take part in and offer feedback. The collected community feedback was presented to Committee 3.96 and served to inform their conversations.

Finally, Committee 3.96 offered a set of recommendations that help redefine civic engagement and increase civic participation in our city. These recommendations will also better shape relationships with existing bureau partners and with those whom we aim to better serve
