SE Uplift Land Use & Transportation Committee

When Do We Meet?

The SE Uplift Land Use & Transportation Committee (LUTC) strives to cover relevant and essential land use and transportation topics through monthly meetings, scheduled for 7 pm on the third Monday of each month. In the event of a federal holiday falling on a Monday, the committee will determine the next meeting. We make the meeting agenda available in advance. To receive the latest news and announcements, sign up for our Land Use & Transportation Bulletin newsletter. The committee meetings may be canceled on certain months due to special circumstances, please check our committee meeting schedule for updates.

What Does the Committee Do?

Our urban environment is experiencing a significant amount of development, planning work, initiatives, and activity, making it challenging for individuals to stay informed and weigh in on the changes. The Land Use and Transportation Committee provides a vital forum for sharing information, discussing, and evaluating land use and transportation plans, policies, and other matters that affect neighborhoods in the SE Uplift area. We regularly invite staff from the City of Portland, Metro, TriMet, and other organizations to speak on a variety of current land use/transportation issues.


The committee also provides an excellent opportunity for community members to collaborate around shared land use or transportation concerns within and across neighborhoods. For more information on the content we cover, please review our monthly agendas and Land Use & Transportation Bulletin newsletter.


The committee occasionally provides recommendations to the SE Uplift Board, expressing support for or opposition to significant land use or transportation issues that affect our coalition area. Each neighborhood association and community organization in attendance designates a representative to make these recommendations. Additionally, participants have the opportunity to represent SE Uplift on Community Advisory Groups and other working groups to ensure that the concerns of neighbors are considered and addressed in the development of public policy.

Who Can Attend?

Our forum is open to all community members who are interested in attending and participating in discussions about pending land use and transportation policy, initiatives, community actions, ideas, and more. We welcome agenda topic requests for the meeting and we encourage active participation in the discussions. We only ask that participants follow our meeting rules of conduct, which are centered around respectful behavior.

What is the Charter?

The Charter outlines the purpose, principles, and authority of this committee, along with the role of participants and its relationship to other groups. We invite you to review the charter for the committee.
