As part of the state-mandated “periodic review” of our long-range plan for Portland, we must present research and background information to the Portland Planning Commission for their consideration. This provides an opportunity for the public to comment on the Portland Plan officially and “on the record.”
You are invited to attend one (or more) of the meetings below to offer your feedback on the Portland Plan. All meetings will be at 1900 SW 4th Ave., Room 2500A, Portland 97201. For more information about the Portland Plan or the hearings, contact Eric Engstrom, project manager, at 503-823-3329 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Portland Plan Facts and Land Supply Analysis
Staff will give the Planning Commission an update on work to improve the Portland Plan Background Reports, with an emphasis on Housing and Employment Land Supply Analysis. In other words, how many vacant or underutilized properties could be available to accommodate growth between now and 2035?
This is an opportunity to:
- Critique any of the factual information being used in the Portland Plan; and
- In particular, critique the facts and assumptions we rely on to evaluate our future housing and employment land needs.
