Managing Neighborhood Growth & Change: Strategies & Tools

The Office of Neighborhood Involvement is hosting an all-day series of workshops and discussions, called the “In It Together” Community Summit, on February 28th at the convention center.

An example of one of the workshops:

Managing Neighborhood Growth & Change: Strategies & Tools for Influencing Neighborhood Design and Facilitating Greater Community Input: Portland is experiencing unprecedented growth and development that is rapidly impacting the density, form and character of existing neighborhoods.  As we grapple with how to accommodate new development into existing communities, many neighborhoods are using creative strategies and tools to influence the form and design of new development. Hear from Neighborhood Association representatives how they are creating their own residential and commercial design guidelines to articulate community design priorities and preferences for new development. Join us to learn about these tools and other creative strategies you can use to facilitate greater input and community involvement in shaping your neighborhood.

There’s lots more! check out the details…
