What is the East Portland Action Plan?
The East Portland Action Plan (EPAP) is a guide for improving livability in outer East Portland. The EPAP is an extension and outgrowth of the East Portland Action Plan Committee which engages the community to advocate for resources to further the values and strategies described in the Action Plan.
EPAP Committees and community members developed recommendations for preventing involuntary displacement in East Portland caused by increasing housing and rental costs and decreasing availability, and lack of local living wage employment.
You can help develop strategies to improve livability and prevent displacement n the Easet Portland Community Office (EPCO) coalition area by participating in EPAP Group meetings. Meetings are held every fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:30 PM, at the David Douglas School District Office Board Room, 1500 SE 130th Avenue, Portland, OR 97223. Childcare, language interpretation, and food can be provided if you contact JR Lilly at email@example.com or 503-823-8027, at least one week in advance.
