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.

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 Plan; Abbreviated East Portlalnd Action Plan, Ист-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.

Results are in…not just another survey where you don’t hear back. In May 2014, an East Portland Action Plan survey was sent out to all East Portland addresses, as an insert in this newsletter. The survey had questions related to transportation and parks use in four languages - Spanish, Russian, Vietnamese, and English. The intent was to ask information of our readers, but also to get neighbors to talk with each other and help prioritize public infrastructure. We encourage all residents to work together with their neighbors, neighborhood associations, community groups, and the East Portland Action Plan to advocate for transportation and parks improvements.
