Pedal KettleMusic, booths, food, raffle prizes, popcorn... and, of course, lively discussions with friends and neighbors. That's a recipe for public engagement that's fun. Hosford Middle School in Southeast Portland was the setting for some "good cookin'" last night, when more than 150 people showed up to see the draft Portland Plan strategies for Education, Economic Prosperity and Affordabilty, Healthy Connected Neighborhoods and an overarching Equity Initiative (see the slide show below).

Next Fair at the Zoo on Sunday, March 6

The next Portland Plan Fair will be at the Oregon Zoo on Sunday, March 6 from 12:30-3PM. Bring the kids and let them roam or take advantage of the free childcare (please call 503-823-2041 for reservations). Don't miss the exotic animals (including an armadillo, python and owl), when they tour the fair between 1-1:30PM.


The fair will also include Peddle Kettle, performances by Colored Pencils Art and Culture artists, community booths, raffle prizes (including free Zoo tickets) and more lively discussions with your fellow Portlanders.
