The City of Portland is updating its 2035 Comprehensive Plan, a long-range 20-year plan that sets the framework for the physical development of the city. Four years in the making, City Council will adopt the plan on June 15th. Unlike many other plans, Comprehensive Plans are legally binding plans required by Oregon land use law. The 2035 plan provides a host of policies and tools that will be necessary in ensuring a just transition from the fossil fuel economy.
Comp Plan Amendments:
Mayor Hales is proposing amendments to add the fossil fuel policy and climate action into the City’s Comprehensive Plan! Now we just need to show our support to make sure they get added into the final Comp Plan.
Can you let the City Council know that you support Mayor Hales’ amendments to:
- Reduce carbon emissions
- Limit fossil fuel distribution and storage facilities
- Increase renewable energ
These amendments are crucial to sync Portland’s land use plans with our climate plans and will give the City the legal force to ensure that the fossil fuel policy is implemented the strongest and most imaginative way possible.
