Objection to Task 4

The Multnomah Neighborhood Association filed three Appeals to Task 4of  the 2035 Comprehensive Plan.   The appeals were made at the direction of the membership.  Two of the objections—on the “middle housing” policy and the lack of process leading to its adoption and on the designation of Multnomah as a Center—were filed on our behalf by Eben 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 chair Carol McCarthy.

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.
