Meeting Summary – 3/9/10

March 9, 2010

12:30pm Briefing on Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail Conceptual Design Report

Just a warm-up for the hearing next month (April 13).

1:14pm Hearing on Portland Plan background documents

Some of the testimony points toward a conflict point we’re likely to see later in the process: environmentalists lining up to support natural resource protections, and economic interests arguing for lighter regulation.

3:04pm Hearing on rezoning of Oregon Sustainability Center site

No public testimony and an affirmative vote on rezoning from RX to CX after a quick briefing. The only policy question was the impact of reducing the residential requirement and the staff report makes clear that plenty of capacity has been created in the Central City recently to offset the potential loss on this site.
