Words from Mayor Sam Adams:
Phase Two of the Portland Plan workshops starts tonight, Monday, April 26th, and I encourage you to attend a neighborhood workshop. All workshops will follow a similar format to the first round, but this time you’ll have a chance to discuss a specific topic in greater depth. Participants will also discuss how we can plan in all areas for the benefit of all Portlanders. You can read more about the topics, also called Action Areas, here.
As Mayor, I am committed to addressing the significant challenges we face as a community – only 61% of our high school students graduate on time, 10.7% of Portlanders are unemployed, nearly 70% of our electricity is produced by burning fossil fuels – and the Portland Plan sets a framework for how this city will overcome these and other challenges over the next 25 years.
Your knowledge of issues and experience in Portland is an invaluable asset when it comes to making decisions about this city’s future. I hope that you will consider contributing to the conversation and helping us refine the collective goals that we are developing to realize a thriving and sustainable city for all Portlanders. Please see the workshop schedule below.
Oh, and just for fun…
We will be welcoming the community with live music, refreshments and door prizes, including donations from local businesses like Grand Central Baking, Pastini Pastaria, New Seasons Market and Meat Cheese Bread. In fact, you can enter to win in our social media contest by RSVPing to the events on Facebook and Twitter.
I look forward to seeing you out in the community”.
