COMMISSIONER HARDESTY HOSTS COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS EVENT IN NORTH PORTLAND

COMMISSIONER HARDESTY HOSTS COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS EVENT IN NORTH PORTLAND

News Release from Portland Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty

Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty kicks off the first of four community events planned throughout Portland on June 29th in North Portland. Following the successful “People’s Budget Forum” held in April, “Community Conversations with Commissioner Hardesty” is a solutions-oriented event series that aims to bring Portland residents together around concerns specific to their neighborhood and community.

“Portlanders know best what is happening in their communities and how to improve their neighborhood. When Portlanders have something to believe in and organize around, they come together in full force. I think our biggest mistake is we don’t ask them often enough," says Hardesty.

Each of the four “Community Conversations” events will be held in different parts of the city. The June 29th event will be held at the Charles Jordan Community Center in North Portland. Upon arriving, attendees will indicate the issue most important to them. The top 3 issues will be discussed amongst attendees in facilitated conversations.

The ideas created out of the event will be used to inform the Commissioner’s priorities and policies moving forward.

The second event in the series will take place on Tuesday, August 13th at Orchards of 82nd, APANO (Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon)’s new office and community space.
