Work Groups

Work Groups are formed to provide feedback and recommendations on specific focus areas. These ad hoc groups provide distinct recommendations on specific topics based on needs identified by the Economic Recovery Task Force. Participation includes members of the Task Force and other interested community members.

The initial Work Groups  focused on areas that were identified by the Economic Recovery Task Force at its March 20 meeting as both urgent and actionable. Task Force members have proposed additional Work Groups which have formed more recently. 

Task Force members are given the opportunity to join Work Groups and recommend additional Work Group members who are not represented on the Task Force. Staff from Prosper Portland, the mayor’s office, and city commissioners’ offices also solicit additional interest in Work Groups specific to the focus area. Prosper Portland staff selected co-chairs for each Work Group based on interest as well as a balance of expertise and perspectives in driving the conversation. 

If you have questions about the Economic Relief and Stabilization Framework or recommendations you would like the Task Force or Work Groups to be aware of, please contact Andrea Gall.
