Portland Plan – Inspiring Communities Series

From Bud Garrison

Hi Everyone,

If you’ve been wondering what’s happening with the Portland Plan, here’s the latest.  The City, in collaboration with a number of its partners organizations has put together a thought provoking, speakers series featuring some of the best and the brightest. See below for what’s coming up starting in December.  Economic Development is last but not least in the series on January 17th. Meanwhile the Planning staff is taking the ideas you gave them via the last round of workshops, surveys, street fairs and community events and turning them into possible scenarios for our city’s future.  You’ll see those early in 2011.
