At our October discussion, a panel of Disabled artists, Kiersi Coleman, Eliza Jensen, Grant Miller, India Harville and Kathy Coleman will be discussing what it truly means to have Disability equity in the arts. We will address how to move beyond tokenism and charity to full integration, what it means to include disability aesthetic and Disabled bodies and minds in art; the question of training and rigor; and how to enact Disability Justice in the arts.

Notice of Proposed Changes to the Rules of Procedure of the City of Portland Hearings Office

Copies of the rules will be available for review and comment from October 6, 2017, through November 7, 2017, online.

OPEN FOR 30-DAY PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE RULES OF PROCEDURE OF THE CITY OF PORTLAND HEARINGS OFFICE IN CONNECTION WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ELECTRONIC PROCESSING (E-FILING) OF APPEALS, TOW APPEALS AND CODE ENFORCMENT COMPLAINTS IN 2018.

October 6, 2017

TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:

The City of Portland Hearings Office anticipates implementing a new electronic filing (e-filing) and case management system to replace an outdated case management system. The addition of e-Filing will provide greater efficiency for the Hearings Office, and greater convenience for City Bureaus, businesses and individuals involved in filing and responding to code appeals and code enforcement proceedings. As a result, rules governing tow hearings, code appeals and code enforcement proceedings need to be modified to reflect the new processes. A summary of significant rule changes is provided on the last pages of each set of rules.

Copies of the rules will be available for review and comment from October 6, 2017, through November 7, 2017, online here:

and at the Hearings Office front desk at the address below, or by calling the Hearings Office at 503-823-7307. The Hearings Office is accessible to people with disabilities.

For additional information, or to submit written comments, contact the Hearings Office at the address or fax below, or send an email to:
appealhearingmailbox@portlandoregon.gov. Written comments should be received by Tuesday, November 7, 2017. If comments are received, they will be considered.
