Meeting Summary 4/27/10

April 27, 2010

6:00pm – Mayor Adams visited with the Commission to discuss his plan to create a new Planning and Sustainability Commission. The idea is to have the current Planning Commissioners and the City-appointed members of the Sustainable Development Commission be appointed to the new Commission and complete the duration of their current terms, forming a new Commission of 11 or 13 members. The County would form a new sustainability commission (previously the commission was a joint City-County body).

The goal is to have this implemented around August and this structure would carry us through the Portland Plan period, after which it would be revisited and fine-tuned.

[break from 6:15 to 6:30]

6:30-9:30pm – Tree Plan

We were again joined by the Forestry Commission. Based on feedback from prior meetings and from other bureaus that the proposed regulations were too complex, staff presented streamlined versions of the development situation section of the proposal that were in general accepted by both commissions. The cost of the proposal is also reduced by potentially looking at spot checks rather than inspections in 100% of cases.
