City Club of Portland Report

This report amplifies and augments last year’s report, “New Government for Today’s Portland: Rethinking 100 Years of the Commission System,” which recommended an overhaul of the city’s current commission form of government. Taken together, these reports seek to spark debate and inspire action that would elevate the voices of all of Portland’s residents, particularly communities of color, ethnic minorities, young people, and renters, regardless of zip code, as well as those living outside of the historically well-represented Southwest and inner East Side.
