Portland Hosts Green Urban Planning Summit

This week, local and international experts in urban planning and sustainable design have been in Portland for the Nature of Cities Summit hosted by The Intertwine Alliance.

Today, Nick invited summit participants to appear before City Council. They shared a brief overview of their work and how to build cities that are in harmony with the natural environment.

Portland is proud of its reputation as a leader in adapting to climate change, integrating nature in our city, and investing in green infrastructure.

Yesterday, the group visited a number of local sites to see this work in practice, including Crystal Springs – where spawning Coho salmon are now thriving.
