Objections to the Comprehensive Plan Filed
Objection to Task 4
The Multnomah Neighborhood Association filed three objections to parts of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan and its related Task 4. The objections were at the direction of the membership by several votes on each stage of the process—the documents at the link below speak for themselves. Two of the objections—on the “middle housing” policy and its process, or lack thereof, and on the designation of Multnomah as a Center—were filed on our behalf by Fodor & Associates, Eugene planning consultants, and reviewed by two land use attorneys. The third objection—on Chapter 2, Citizen Involvement, was filed on our behalf by past president Carol McCarthy who was president during the Comp Plan process and rigorously pursued this issue.
Objection to the Designation of the Multnomah Neighborhood as a Center in the City of Portland Comprehensive Plan Update
Objection to Task 5
On August 7th, the City of Portland submitted Task 5 of the 2035 Comprehensive Plan to the Department of Land Conservation and Development (DLCD).
On August 25th, MNA submitted an objection to the Plan’s Early Implementation Task 5. If found valid, the objection basically would maintain the historic character of the village by changing the CM2 zoning to CM1. The measurement of height would be done on the lowest frontage street. The document is posted below.
The City submitted the record for Task 4 to the DLCD. The City waived the 120-day time limit for review and requested it to be done with Task 5 when submitted. The MNA wrote a letter to DLCD director Jim Rue and the commissioners to inquire about this waiver and request that DCLD proceed with the review.
Multiplexes can go on any lot that is yellow, no matter what it is zoned, without requiring parking.
