Improve outreach and involvement of East Portland residents and businesses in Portland Plan; expand capacity of EPNO land use chairs group to engage in Portland Plan.

Encouraged use of the East Portland Action Plan (recently completed) to guide Portland Plan policies for East Portland. ONI has organized two ABC's of Land Use workshops in outer East since 2009. East Portland Action Plan has advocated with the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability District Liaison to develop a spread sheet that informs where each Action item is addressed in the Portland Plan, which Policy Expert Group is most appropriate to address each Action item, and where the Action item would best be addressed in the Comprehensive Plan. This document is in process, but has received initial draft review. East Portland Action Plan Housing Subcommittee has been actively advocating to advance systemic address of this Action item. The EPAP made this Action item one of their priorities for 2012 -13.
