What Does and Action Plan Mean for The Port?

It has been 13 years since the last neighborhood plan was done for The Port. A lot has changed since then! The Port Action Plan is all about hearing from you - what you value most about your neighborhood and what ideas you have to make it better. Throughout 2024 there will be many opportunities to share your thoughts with City staff and your neighbors. Sign up for The Port mailing list below or keep an eye on this web page for more information on ways to be involved!
