Historic Preservation and the Portland Plan
What could be more fitting for our very last formal “Partners in the Field” National-Trust-supported preservation advocacy program than the subject we started our initiative with—the Portland Plan? As all of the related planning work has proceeded, we’ve participated every step of the way—and we find that there is lots of public confusion out there. Of course, we want to dispel that and we have just the right program to do it!
Join us on Saturday, June 30th as we bring together the very best experts who will help untangle the Portland Plan maze for us all. The city’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will be sending Central City 2035 Planners, Steve Iwata, and Eric Engstrom, who will be joined by Central City Stakeholders chairman Chet Orloff, and Citizen Involvement leader Linda Nettekoven, who will together address:
The Portland Plan—where are we at, what’s the timeline for completion and adoption?
The Central City Plan/2035— where and how does it fit with the overall Portland Plan?
What’s happening with the North/Northeast Quadrant Plan, and when do the other quadrants get their turns? The upcoming Comprehensive Plan—how will it be developed and what’s the timeline? How has public involvement worked and how can we better participate to be more effective? Join us as we inject a better grasp and understanding of this yeoman effort to plan for Portland’s future—AND—get it right
