Portland Audubon has played a key role in getting these programs in front of City Council, and now we need your help to ensure that these new policies are adopted. You can view our full comments here.
The amendments also include one huge problem—they support a $450 million expansion of I-5 which will do nothing to alleviate congestion but will waste hundreds of millions of dollars. It is important to tell the city to stop this boondoggle now and instead support congestion pricing.
Please see instructions below to submit comments or attend the hearing to let City Council know that you want them to adopt the package of environmental policies in the Central City Plan.
