SE Uplift Land Use & Transportation Committee

COVID-19 Update

The SE Uplift Land Use and Transportation Committee (LUTC) will still strive to cover relevant and important land use topics the 3rd Monday of the month virtually. We have reduced our meeting time to accomodate virtual attention spans : ). See the zoom link below to register and thank you for your continued participation! 

When We Meet.

The SE Uplift Land Use and Transportation Committee (LUTC) typically meets the third Monday of each month from 7 to 9 PM at the SE Uplift offices, 3534 SE Main St. Portland. The agenda is available in advance and sent out to those on our mailing list. To be included in the agenda distribution and latest news and announcements, sign up for the LUTC Updates on our main page. The LUTC may not meet certain months due to special circumstance, look at information below and our community calendar for updates.

What We Do.

There is so much development, planning work, initiatives, and activity happing right now in our urban environment – it can be tough stay informed and weigh in on that change. The Land Use and Transportation Committee serves as a forum for information sharing, discussion, and evaluation of land use and transportation plans, policies, and more that effect neighborhoods in the SE Uplift area. We frequently host staff from the City of Portland, Metro, TriMet and other organizations to speak on a variety of current land use/transportation issues. The LUTC is also an opportunity for community members and neighborhood representatives to get to know their neighbors and collaborate around shared land use or transportation concerns or issues. Review our monthly agendas for more details on the content we cover.

Occasionally, the LUTC will make recommendations to the SE Uplift Board in favor or in opposition to significant land use or transportation issues that affects our coalition area. Recommendations are made by appointed neighborhood association representatives in attendance. Participants may also represent SE Uplift on Citizen Advisory Committees and other working groups to ensure the concerns of neighbors are addressed in the development of public policy. 

Who Can Attend? 

This is a forum for all interested community members. All are welcome to attend and request agenda topics for this meeting as well as engage in monthly discussions about pending land use and transportation policy, initiatives, community actions & ideas, and more. We only ask that participants follow our meeting rules of conduct, centered around respectful behavior.

LUTC Charter

Beginning May 2016, 15 neighborhood representatives participated online and in-person to collaboratively draft our LUTC Charter. The Charter outlines the purpose, principles, and authority of this Committee along with the role of participants, relationship to other groups, and more.  Review the LUTC’s FINAL Charter
