Public Involvement

Why is Public Participation and Involvement important here in Portland?

The City of Portland believes that the public can provide valuable input and assistance to our MS4 municipal stormwater management program, and we want to provide the public with expanding opportunities to play an active role in both the development and implementation of our local stormwater program. An active and involved community is crucial to the success of a stormwater management program because it allows for:

  • Broader Public Support

  • Shorter Implementation Schedules

  • A Broader Base of Expertise and Economic Benefits

  • A Conduit to Other Programs

  • Volunteer Opportunities

The city is establishing foundational opportunities for public involvement.  With the exceptional leadership within our City, we hope to see citizens taking the initiative to work with our Stormwater Coordinator to increase the events and opportunities that we offer in our great city.
