In light of all the planning projects the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) currently has underway, we plan to hold regular bi-monthly (or as needed) BPS Planning Project Updates to help those interested in tracking this work. Here is some additional information on this and future events:
What: Quick informal overview of current and upcoming BPS projects, including information about timelines and how people can learn more/provide feedback. This month, I’ll focus on the drafts coming out of the Better Housing by Design project and the Residential Infill Project.
Who: District Coalition land use staff and anyone else interested in helping community members engage in land use planning issues.
Why: BPS is doing a lot of projects, many of them complicated, with shifting timelines. We recognize that the burden of understanding and explaining these processes often falls on people who are designated as the land use expert for their community. We want to make sure that we’re supporting those of you who do that work with accurate and useful information.
Where: Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods office, 4815 NE 7th Ave., Portland, OR 97211
When: October 4, 4:30 to 6pm
