The Future's So Bright...ALNA's Comp Plan Comments for Review

After many months of discussion and outreach, we are ready to submit comments on the City's Comprehensive Plan that will direct how the city (and our neighborhood) grows and is impacted by development over the next 20 years. From the City's website:

"Portland has only created one Comprehensive Plan before, and that was adopted almost 35 years ago. Today’s advances in technology provide planners with so much more information and data that it takes more time to analyze and apply the findings to our work...There’s definitely more to consider this time around. Portland is a third again as big as it was then, mostly due to annexation. And our increasingly diverse population has grown by 200,000 people...The issues the plan is addressing are also broader and more complex."
We looked at where we'd like to see businesses and apartment buildings, industrial warehouses, open spaces and more. Take a look at our draft comments, and bring your questions and ideas to our meeting, Thursday, October 16th, 6:30pm at the Kenton Firehouse. Also, feel free to contact our Land Use Volunteer, Nate Young at landuse@arborlodgeneighborhood.com if you'd like to ask questions outside of the meeting.

    One quick correction: Paul Scarlett is the Director of Development Services, which is not in charge of the Comp Plan updates. Susan Anderson is the director of the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, which is. The letter should be addressed to her and the Planning and Sustainability Commission.
