Representatives of Northeast Portland neighborhood associations are expressing concerns over the proposed rewrite of the civic engagement process that would eliminate them from the City Code.

In an Aug. 14 letter to the City Council, the board of Central Northeast Neighbors, Inc. said it cannot support the current proposal, while criticizing the public involvement process leading to it as inadequate. The board is comprised of representatives from the associations.
