Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan

Multnomah County’s Multi-Jurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan (NHMP) focuses on mitigation strategies that will improve preparedness, mitigation, and response to natural hazardous such as earthquakes, floods, landslides, severe weather events, volcanoes, and wildfire and wildfire smoke.  For the first time, this plan includes the Columbia Corridor Drainage Districts (Peninsula 1, Peninsula 2, Multnomah County Drainage District, and Sandy Drainage Improvement Company) with the Cities of Fairview, Gresham, Troutdale, Wood Village, Multnomah County, and the Port of Portland.

Over the past year, Drainage District staff developed a list of strategies that reflect capital improvement priorities and District Drainage Master Plans, and incorporated priorities from Fall 2021 community surveys that emphasized levee improvements, monitoring and maintenance, outreach, and education.  

Public Review Opportunity

A draft of the plan has been released for public review, and your input continues to be an important part of this process.  Feedback that is provided will be used to improve the final plan and guide future updates. The deadline to provide comments is Friday, February 10, 2023. To access the draft plan and the comment form, or to learn more about the purpose and background of the plan, please visit the Multnomah County website: https://www.multco.us/em/natural-hazards-mitigation-planning.

For questions regarding the Columbia Corridor Drainage Districts’ involvement in the plan, please contact Matt Burlin at (503) 320-5370 or mburlin@mcdd.org.

December 2022Was this email forwarded to you? Sign up to receive Police Accountability Commission updates at https://tinyurl.com/portlandpacupdates  Dear Portlanders,The City of Portland Police Accountability Commission (PAC) has published its quarterly report covering the period from July 1 – September 30, 2022. This report includes an overview and analysis of the work of the PAC over the third quarter of 2022, which was a portion of the Commission’s Fact-Finding Phase.  The purpose of the 2022 Q3 Quarterly Report is to provide the City Council and community members with a general sense of what the PAC worked on between July 1 and September 30. This report does not represent any final decisions made by the Police Accountability Commission on the structure, powers, duties, or other details of the new community police oversight board or investigatory and disciplinary structure for Portland police. The report will be presented at a public meeting of the City Council later this month.  The Commission will issue its fourth quarterly report by early February 2023. This report will focus on the period from October 1 to December 31, which will include the completion of the Fact-Finding Phase of Work and much of the following phase, the Powers and Duties Phase of work. As of the time of publication, the PAC has completed the Fact-Finding Phase and is now working on Powers and Duties, with the intention of identifying areas of agreement among the commission’s members on:Access to Information, which addresses how the new oversight board will access the information necessary to do its work (including compelled testimony, subpoena power, and access to police records)Officer Accountability, which addresses how the new system will address a complaint about an officer, from intake through discipline and appeals.Structural Oversight, which addresses how the oversight board will address police and policing on a broader level, including policy and directive recommendationsThe PAC event calendar shows all upcoming events, including meetings of the PAC and its sub-committees. As community engagement events, another major focus of the Commission’s work, are scheduled, they will also be added to the event calendar.
Get Involved!The PAC website includes a page with more information on how to get involved in the commission’s work, including how to watch meetings, give public comment during meetings, and give advance public comment to the PAC as well. Thank you!
