"Portland's Future: How Do We Accommodate Growth & Global Warming?" an evening with Portland urban architect George Crandall. 5:30 p.m. wine & hors d'oeuvres reception, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. lecture, at Neil Kelly Design Center, 804 N. Alberta St., Portland. In the next 20 years, Portland will experience dramatic change: 260,000 new residents are expected, accompanied by a 40 percent increase in traffic volumes. And along with the rest of the world, Portland will need to reduce carbon emissions significantly. Portland’s recently adopted 2035 Comprehensive Plan and soon-to-be-adopted Central City Plan supposedly address these challenges. Unfortunately, both plans are long on generalizations and short on specifics. Crandall’s slide presentation will identify the plans’ strengths and weaknesses and suggest alternatives for consideration. Tickets are $25; limited to 50 guests. Reserve tickets securely online. Proceeds benefit EMO's ministries.
