A revised draft will be posted to the website after the July 15 meeting incorporating final changes as well as the final design.  The plan will then be presented at a hearing of the Multnomah County Planning Commission on August 4, the first of several public hearings scheduled in August and September.  The Board of County Commissioners will vote on the plan this fall.
