Urban Renewal Area (URA) Strategy Session and Recommendations Workgroup: At this Workgroup, staff at the NE Coalition will be presenting recommendations from community input from the series of URA forums that have occurred. Then Neighborhood Leaders will be deciding on specific recommendations and input to give to the Portland Development Commission. As you know, this is a big issue in our neighborhoods and we want to get our neighborhoods on the same page sooner rather than later.
Saturday, April 3rd, 10am-1pm, Curious Comedy Venue at 5225 NE MLK (in Vanport Square):
Portland Plan Retreat: The Portland Plan is the City’s update to the 30 year plan. Many people throughout the 12 Neighborhoods in the NE Coalition area have requested that the NE Coalition coordinate a retreat for Neighborhood Board Members to come together, identify specific neighborhood issues to advocate for in the Portland Plan, and strategize about how we will advocate for our issues. This is a unique opportunity for us to come together across neighborhood boundaries, share our needs and talk about how to move forward together.
