Please note: this week's Friday Forum earlier than usual.
City Club is releasing a new Research Committee report, "Big Steps Before the Big One: How the Portland area can bounce back after a major earthquake." The report recommends strategies focused on creating systems to preserve social and physical infrastructure. Teri Martin, chair of the earthquake research committee will share an overview of the report. Then, experts who are actively engaged in this work will discuss some of the report's findings.
Carmen Merlo, Director, Portland Bureau of Emergency Management
Yumei Wang Geohazards Engineer, Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries
Jay Wilson, Clackamas County Resilience Coordinator
After the program, City Club members will debate and vote whether to adopt the report as an official City Club position. Members not in attendance will have an opportunity to vote online.
