Learn more about Portland’s Comprehensive Plan, with Nan Stark of BPS: multiple upcoming opportunities.

The Bureau of Planning & Sustainability (BPS) has released a draft of its Comprehensive Plan, which sets the framework for Portland’s development over the next 20 years.

Next Wednesday, August 27 at 7:00 pm, it’s time to roll up our sleeves a bit and dig into the Comp Plan with Nan Stark, our BPS Liaison.

Inner NE Sewer Extension Construction Update: August 19th.

As part of the City of Portland’s effort to provide properties with sewer connections that comply with city code, Environmental Services continues construction on the Inner NE Sewer Extension project. This project will also help protect public health, property, and the environment by increasing the capacity of the public sewer system, reducing the potential for basement backups, and reducing the likelihood of emergency maintenance work in the future.


A project map is available at



Periodic traffic delays on NE Prescott will continue through mid-September

  • On and off through mid-September, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, motorists and cyclists should expect delays on NE Prescott Street between NE 6th and 10th avenues.  Crews will be installing new main public sewer pipe and constructing several manholes in phases. Some phases will require flaggers to direct traffic around the work zone.



Below is the estimated Inner NE Sewer Extension construction schedule for the rest of this week and the next two weeks. As the contractor completes work on each street, crews apply a temporary asphalt patch over trenches used for construction. They will return at a later date to apply permanent paving.
