Information About Maplewood Zoning Changes

As part of the City of Portland Comprehensive Plan Update, the Maplewood Neighborhood Association would like to offer resources for you to review changes that have been drafted and make comments to the City about the proposed changes.  Many of these changes are not decided upon and the City of Portland needs your input about the proposed changes.

Below are some key resources you can use to familiarize yourself with the Comprehensive Plan and how it will impact the city, your neighborhood and possibly your street.

 

Go to the bottom in FAQs and it answers how to give testimony:

  • Through the Map App.  Comment Tabs are visible when viewing proposed property changes.
  • Email: cputestimony@portlandoregon.gov
  • US Mail: Comprehensive Plan Testimony, c/o Council Clerk, 1221 SW Fourth Ave., Room 130, Portland OR, 97204.
  • In person: City Council will hold public hearings, check the project calendar for dates and times.

 

Please include your full name and mailing address in your testimony. Without this information, the City is not able to send you notification of Council hearing dates or the Council's final decision, and you may not be able to appeal the Council's final decision.

Check each project web page for updated project schedules and calendars, or download a printable graphic, also updated regularly.

Note: All testimony to the City Council is considered public record, and testifiers' name, address and any other information included in the testimony (e.g., email strings with other people's contact information) will be posted on the website.

Maplewood Neighborhood has TWO major zoning changes that will be going before City Council soon

One change is categorized as an AMENDMENT.  The home page for AMENDMENTS is http://www.portlandoregon.gov/bps/article/569930

 

Specifically, Maplewood has AMENDMENT 25, located at 4545 SW California St.  This is part of St. Luke's Lutheran Church property.  You can use the Map App and enter the address 4545 SW California St to find this property:
