Hello Everyone, Please join us for our Portland Harbor CAG meeting using the zoom link above.
We will take a look at how the CEI Hub is changing and what these changes might mean for our river. This months meeting we will be discussing Fuel Tank Seismic Stability Standards in the Portland Harbor with Michael Kortenhoff from Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ). ODEQ would like to get community feedback about these new developing standers, come prepared to ask lots of questions and voice your concerns. We will also discuss Portland’s New Renewable Fuel Standards with Pam Neild, City of Portland Planning and Sustainability. The Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) was seeking community feedback, that ended Oct. 3rd, on another initiative to meet the City’s 2050 climate and renewable energy goals by reducing dependence on nonrenewable fossil fuels. Come and join us to find out what this means for our community and our river in the CEI Hub.
