Liberty Lecture – Portland

The Politics and Principles of Urban Sustainability: Portland and Vancouver

Metro Portland Councilor Robert Liberty’s lecture on the politics of change in cities launched the Commission’s A City Built for Change¬†program on September 18, 2007. The engaging 45 minute presentation followed by Q&A describes Portland’s own struggles with the issues of density, including many that mirror Vancouver’s own experience today.
