Interstate URA: Public Participation
How to Get Involved
The Urban Renewal Advisory Committees (URACs) represent a diverse composition of URA and citywide stakeholders. Members are often drawn from neighborhood and business associations, non-profit organizations, project partners, business owners and representatives, citywide civic groups, and citizens at large. URAC members are appointed by the PDC Board of Commissioners to represent a broad range of interests.
The Commission is always looking for new community members who may be interested in serving on PDC advisory committees, whether the focus is on a specific urban renewal area, project or program.
committee meetings are open to the public. ICURAC meets quarterly to
discuss project prioritization and to make funding recommendations to
the Portland Development Commission. Meetings are generally held on the
third Monday evening of January, April, July and October.
