Land Use Committee

The Land Use Committee acts as a forum in the community to address land issues. More specifically, the committee:

  • Advises and aids neighborhoods in responding to land use reviews.
  • Participates in a wide range of planning projects and public discussions related to land use: proposed changes to the zoning code, environmental protections such as tree preservation and stormwater management, and district planning such as the Marquam Hill Plan and South Waterfront.
  • Recommends actions and positions, as appropriate, to the SWNI Board.

Meetings are held the third Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in the SWNI Conference Room at the Multnomah Center, 7688 SW Capitol Hwy.
