Key Talking Points
Portland Audubon is advocating for the following improvements (View full comments):
- Expand the Willamette River setback to at least 100 feet to provide better river protection, riparian habitat, access and climate resilience. Add tools to remove development from the setback over time.
- Strengthen bird-safe building and lighting provisions and extend them to the entire the South Reach Area to reduce bird collisions with windows and reduce light pollution.
- Expand regulatory protections for trees and other native vegetation throughout the plan area and especially along the River Environmental Overlay zones.
- The plan should call for the City to take necessary steps to add Waverly Country Club into the South Reach plan area given its significant natural resources and restoration potential.
Thank you for adding your voice towards improving the South Reach River Plan.
