Climate Action Plan Town Hall
The city of Portland and Multnomah County invite Portland’s communities to attend Town Halls to discuss the 2009 draft Climate Action Plan.
The draft Climate Action Plan is a strategy to decrease local carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050. The plan identifies high-level goals and specific actions to accelerate local efforts to address this issue.
Please join us to hear about the challenges and opportunities set forth by this action plan. Your input is valuable.
The question is not DO we take action but HOW will we take action?

If so, then please RSVP today to attend the Neighborhood Board Orientation on Saturday, June 27 from 9:00 AM-Noon.
Washington-Monroe All-Season Community Center
We want your input.
The old Washington-Monroe High School, located at SE 12th and Stark, is currently being developed into a community center which will serve a 3-mile radius service area around the site. We are looking for neighborhood input into the design and use of the community center, particularly because it will be used by so many different neighborhoods. A survey has been created to obtain this information from neighbors and can be found here.

Do you enjoy exchanging ideas with your community? Come join the dialogue. We are talking about CHANGE. This month we are moving from talking to action. Brainstorming plans, identifying partners and developing steps. Join us for an exciting conversation.
