Provide your verbal comments about the project's Supplemental Environmental Assessment at the virtual public hearing on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

In an effort to promote equity and in line with the project values, the I-5 Rose Quarter Improvement Project will ask people who identify as Black and/or people with ties to the historic Albina neighborhood to speak first, after invited testimony.
Participants who plan to provide testimony will have two minutes to speak — three minutes if working with an interpreter.
We are limited to 500 attendees for the evening and a limited number of speakers. We’ll be prioritizing attendance to equity groups and Portland and Oregon residents upon registration. After registering, you’ll receive a unique link and directions to join the virtual Zoom event closer to the event date.
During the hearing, people identifying as Black and/or having ties to historic Albina will go first after invited testimony. Next, we'll ask others who wish to speak to raise their hand. When hands raise, a randomized list will be created, which will determine the order of the speakers. We'll accommodate as many speakers as time allows.
To provide testimony, please fill out the registration form completely and make note of any/all accommodation or accessibility needs in the form.
Registration to attend and/or speak closes on Monday, December 12, 2022, at 5 p.m. If you’re not able to attend or speak at the event, there are several other ways to submit your public comment, and all comments are viewed equally.
If you wish to attend the virtual public hearing but cannot attend by phone or computer, or you require language accommodations, please contact the project team at 503-470-3127.
