‘We The People‘ is the first of its kind, human and humor focused documentary web series that highlights the challenges of modern immigration. The series aims to throw a light on real immigrant stories with a focus on the positive, light-hearted and relatable nuances of making a new place, your home. If you haven’t already, check out the trailer below:

The E-zone Map Correction Project will adjust the location of Portland’s environmental overlay zones to match locations of existing streams, wetlands, steep slopes and vegetation as required by the new Comprehensive Plan. The environmental overlay zones protect natural resources that are essential for watershed health. The environmental overlay zones were applied to properties through officially adopted conservation plans around Portland starting in 1989 and completed in 2003. With the new Natural Resources Inventory in 2012 it became obvious that some resources that are supposed to be protected (like stream segments) are not, while other lands have regulations but no natural resources. This project will correct that. If your property will be considered for remapping as part of this project, you will receive a postcard in the mail. The postcard will let you know where you can get more information about potential changes on your property. Contact Mindy Brooks, 503-823-7831 or email@example.com for more information.
