How the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability's work on Residential Infill Project and other housing opportunity initiatives aligns with new state legislation
BPS Director Andrea Durbin directs $3,500 for sponsorships to seven organizations and community coalitions.
The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability takes our partnerships with the many communities we serve seriously. We are grateful to have so many allies and supporters through our long-standing relationships with community groups, coalitions, faith-based institutions, affinity groups and more.
A great deal of the work done by our community partners starts small — in church basements and local cafes, during kids’ soccer games, over long commutes, long past dinner hours, on the weekends, in friends’ backyards and myriad other places.
We want to be more intentional about building the capacity of grassroots organizers, community advocates, and all the movers, shakers and changemakers in Portland. So, BPS is recognizing the following emerging organizations and coalitions in whose work we see shared value, alignment and strong promise:
We hope these funds will serve as seeds to continue the positive trajectory these community champions are on.
Property owners in the Columbia Corridor and on Hayden Island are invited to talk with City planners about the Environmental Overlay Zone Map Correction Project at drop-in hours in July.
The Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability is in the process of correcting ezone maps around the city. Ezones are a tool to help protect natural resources, such as rivers, streams, wetlands and wildlife habitat in Portland.
The Environmental Overlay Zone Map Correction Project team is now reviewing the ezones in the Columbia Corridor and on Hayden Island. Property owners and other interested community members are invited to talk with City planners about changes to the ezones maps during drop-in hours at the Multnomah County Drainage District, 1880 NE Elrod Drive, on:
Staff will have online maps for you to look at and can talk about how the project may affect your property.
The Environmental Overlay Zone Map Correction Project will correct the boundaries of the conservation (c) and protection (p) overlay zones to match the locations of rivers, streams, wetlands, floodplains, forests, steep slopes and wildlife habitat. Project staff started work in areas near Johnson Creek, then expanded to the northeast neighborhoods. This spring the project focused on the Northwest and Southwest Hills. Work on ezones is now underway in the Columbia Corridor.
We expect the environmental overlay zones will only change slightly on most properties. But some properties may have expanded ezones; others may have smaller ones. You can learn more in a self-guided presentation.
You can use the Ezone Review Map to look up your property. This map will tell you what kinds of environmental overlays apply now and what are proposed to change. You can also request a site visit through the Ezone Review Map, and staff will come to your property to review the data.
There are new garbage rates and schedule changes for residential customers.
Garbage bills are changing
Portland City Council approved a garbage and recycling bill increase in May to cover higher fees for processing yard debris and food scraps and a surcharge for the voter-approved Portland Clean Energy Fund. Rates for most customers will go up by 2% to 3% beginning July 1, 2019. That is approximately $.75 more per month.
Curbside collection schedules
The 2019-2020 Garbage Collection Schedule is out! Portland residents are sent one of two versions (orange or purple) based on street address because garbage and recycling company routes vary around the city. Find your schedule at www.garbagedayreminders.com.
As a reminder, there are no schedule changes for holidays, except two twice a year – Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. That means collection takes place as usual on July 4 for Thursday customers.
