The Portland Plan will be the City's strategic plan to guide investments and decisions we make over the next 25 years to ensure that Portland is a prosperous, sustainable and equitable city. During Phase I of the Portland Plan, we heard from more than 8,000 Portlanders through our print and online surveys and spoke with nearly 1,000 people who participated in community workshops across the city.

 

Now we’re preparing for Phase II: Setting Direction. In this phase, we will consider where we want to go. What are our targets, and how might we get there? What are the things we could do to move in the right direction?

 

March and April Work Sessions

To prepare for the Phase II workshops, the Portland Plan Technical Action Groups (TAGs) are busy compiling, sorting and synthesizing the information Portlanders provided through visionPDX, the fall 2009 workshops and online surveys from Phase I.

 

The TAGs are convening work sessions during the month of March to help shape the development of the April and May workshops. These work sessions are public staff meetings and will provide the opportunity to think critically about the information we’ve received from Portlanders. Please come prepared to work!
