About Periodic Review

As part of the state-mandated “periodic review” of our long-range plan for Portland, we must present research and background information to the Planning and Sustainability Commission for their consideration. One goal of the Portland Plan is to establish community agreement about the key facts that support our plans for the future. These meetings provide an opportunity for the public to comment on those facts officially and “on the record.”

All meetings will be held at 1900 SW 4th Ave., Room 2500A, Portland 97201.

Tuesday, October 26, 6 p.m. - Calendar


Overview and Update


Staff will give an overview and update on the Portland Plan, and Periodic Review, to the new Planning and Sustainability Commission.

Tuesday, November 23, 6 p.m. - Calendar

Work Session/Hearing

Factual Basis and Buildable Lands Analysis


Staff will present an update on the Housing and Employment Land Supply Analysis and revisions to the Portland Plan Background Reports published in late 2009, in particular the Historic Resources, Natural Resources Inventory and Watershed Health reports. The Commission will review the reports for accuracy and completeness. Public comments welcome.

Tuesday, December 14,12:30 p.m. - Calendar


Factual Basis and Buildable Lands Analysis


The Commission will make recommendations to City Council on the updated Background Reports and the Housing and Employment Land Supply Analysis, in essence authorizing the City to proceed to the next step of developing alternative plans (or scenarios) for the future. Portlanders will be able to review these in 2011 and 2012. Public comments welcome.


Great cities don't happen by chance. Come be a part of what’s next for Portland.
