Hello Neighborhood and Community Association board members, leaders and activists;
Attached please find the notes from the Portland Plan Retreat that was hosted by the NE Coalition of Neighborhoods on Saturday, April 3rd from 10am-1pm at Curious Comedy Venue. We had great turn-out of a wide variety of people who have experience working on a wide variety of issues in our community – from education to transportation to the arts and more!
Thank you all who were able to attend and contribute your time and ideas! Your participation is what makes these events successful! Debbie Bischoff, NE Portland District Planner with the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, will be in-putting this information into the Portland Plan.
The next step for you and your neighbors is to take this information, and the other priorities you see in your neighborhood to the Phase II Workshops. Follow this link to find the schedule of workshops: http://www.portlandonline.com/portlandplan/index.cfm?a=289672&c=50730#1. At this workshop Portland Plan staff will be presenting the goals that have been identified in each of the 9 Action Areas from Phase I, get your feedback on these goals and lead a discussion about equity in the City. You are welcome to attend any of the workshops, not just the NE workshop.
Please contact Lauren McCartney anytime if you have thoughts, comments, or questions about this process and the notes.
