The first Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) hearing on The Portland Plan – Proposed Draft was held on Tuesday, November 8 at Jefferson High School. Mayor Adams presented an overview of the plan, and representatives from Urban League, Center for Intercultural Organizing, SUN System Coordinating Council, Oregon Public Health Institute, Portland Audubon Society and Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, among others, gave testimony.



Perhaps most affected by this 25-year plan to make Portland prosperous, healthy and equitable are the city's youth. Students serving on the Multnomah Youth Commission spoke to the commissioners, supported by youth from Trillium Charter School and Jefferson High, along with a Youth Planning Program member attending Portland State University. They adovocated for youth to be included in the decision-making process when discussing policies that affect the youth community.
