About the Event
The City of Portland has announced the kick-off of Preserving Portland, an initiative to engage residents and stakeholders in shaping a vision for the city’s future. Input received through this process will inform the development of a comprehensive plan for the City of Portland. The first opportunity for the public to participate will be on Tuesday, May 23, at the Richland Park Gym.
The city’s planning department is leading an all-inclusive approach to preparing for anticipated growth by seeking to understand the needs and desires of residents and the business community. In addition, it provides an opportunity to coordinate infrastructure plans and investments with Sumner and Robertson Counties. Input received throughout this process will inform recommendations for land use policies, economic development strategies, open space priorities, and capital improvement programs aimed at addressing traffic congestion, local school capacity, and other government services and utilities.
The Preserving Portland comprehensive plan kick-off event will be held on Tuesday, May 23, from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about current planning efforts and share their ideas with local leaders. Formal remarks from the mayor will begin at 6 p.m. and additional opportunities for engagement will follow the kick-off event.
