East Portland Action Plan (EPAP) Advocate Lore Wintergreen can be reached at: 503.823.4035 or lore.wintergreen@portlandoregon.gov.

The EPAP acknowledges community strengths and supports existing efforts, while looking strategically at opportunities to improve livability and at policies to address some of the challenges facing East Portland. The EPAP was convened by the City of Portland, Multnomah County, and now U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley, for the specific task of providing leadership and guidance to public agencies and other entities on how to strategically address community-identified issues and allocate resources to improve livability and prevent displacement in East Portland. East Portland is defined by the East Portland Neighborhood Office (EPNO) coalition area (see attached map below).

We need YOU to make the improvements (268 action items) identified in the Action Plan become real in our community! Brochures in seven (7) different languages can be found at the bottom of this page. Copies of the Action Plan can be found at: Adopted Action PlanAbbreviated East Portlalnd Action PlanИст-Портленд План Действий » (EPAP) Russian, and El Plan de Acción para el Este de Portland

Don’t ask what the Action Plan can do for you; decide that you will work with EPAP to make the actions and strategies become a reality. The East Portland Action Plan group meets every fourth (4th) Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM at the David Douglas School District Office Board Room, 1500 SE 130th Ave., Portland, OR 97233 (at SE Market between Division and Stark).

Food is provided and with one week notice childcare and language interpretation will be made available. If you have any questions or suggestions, EPAP Advocate Lore Wintergreen can be reached at: 503.823.4035 or lore.wintergreen@portlandoregon.gov

Together we can make the identified improvements that you work for become real. We have already shown great success in moving forward Action items the group has prioritized.

Involuntary Displacement* Prevention Recommendations for East Portland

*Involuntary Displacement is caused when you must move because the cost of housing and rent increased, you cannot find new housing or a business location in the area that is affordable or you cannot find work within a reasonable distance to your home that will support your family.

EPAP Committees worked for a year to develop ‘Involuntary Displacement Prevention Recommendations for East Portland’. 200 community members reviewed the recommendations and additions were made. You can review the final Recommendations at: http://tinyurl.com/EPAP-Displacement-Recommends  

We must do both livability improvements and involuntary displacement prevention at the same time (kind of like walking and talking).

If we do not DO SOMETHING NOW to put these tools into action, we will not be preventing involuntary displacement; we will be mourning more losses in our community.
