On a beautiful Saturday morning, residents gathered at University Park Community Center for lively jazz music and group discussions about Portland’s future. Onsite childcare attracted families with children but some of the youth joined in the discussion, including OPAL second grader Ben Kress, who shared his thoughts on why people should get involved in planning their own neighborhoods. Bureau of Planning and Sustainability Director Susan Anderson and Commissioner Amanda Fritz gave the welcome. Raffle prizes included gift certificates for Pizzacato and New Seasons, Oregon Zoo tickets and an Urban Growth Bounty 2010 class.
