Asserting that public testimony is vital at this point, the commission is considering all comments as it discusses and deliberates goals, policies and map changes in the proposed draft. Considered the official advisory body to City Council, the PSC will ultimately submit a recommended draft to City Commissioners for consideration. Once adopted, the plan is forwarded to the state for acknowledgment.
Portland’s draft Comprehensive Plan includes proposed land use changes, goals and policies, a Transportation Systems Plan and a Citywide Systems Plan. Anyone wishing to learn more about the draft Comprehensive Plan can attend an open house prior to the hearings and have the opportunity to engage one-on-one conversations with Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, Portland Transportation and TriMet staff to get personalized answers to questions about how the Comprehensive Plan may affect one’s property or neighborhood.
