Mitigation Action Plan (The Map)
The MAP is the city’s plan to reduce our risks from hazards like floods, landslides, and earthquakes. It tells us how hazard events might affect our city, and the ways city offices plan to reduce those impacts. We want to talk to you about the plan and hear what you think!
Summer Social NW
6:00 – 8:30 pm
This will be a very informal, open-house type event. Activities like a liquefaction shake table, and an erupting papier-mache volcano, as well as maps showing the natural hazard risks in the city will be available. We want to bring people together to talk about some of the projects and programs listed in the draft plan, and if there are ways we could improve the plan to better serve the needs and priorities of people in Portland. And of course, there will be snacks!
Translation is available if you let us know one week in advance.
