Mayor Strimling to Host Neighborhood Office Hours Throughout July & August

Beginning this Saturday, July 8, Mayor Ethan Strimling will hold office hours at businesses in neighborhoods around the city and outside on City Hall Plaza for the second round of "Strimling on the Street." The meeting times are designed to engage Portland residents as they go about their daily routines:  getting a cup of coffee or a summer treat, visiting a hardware store, shopping for groceries, or grabbing some takeout. 

"Strimling on the Street" continues the Mayor’s effort to make city government and policymakers more accessible to those they are elected to represent.

Mayor Strimling, who can often be seen greeting passersby and holding meetings on the front steps of City Hall, views these neighborhood meetings as another way to learn from residents about the issues that matter most to them. 

"I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with so many wonderful people last year, and it was extremely beneficial to hear about what issues matter most to them,” said Mayor Ethan Strimling. “I look forward to meeting even more people this year. I know most people cannot take the time out of their busy day to make the trip to City Hall, so with the help of some great businesses throughout the city, we’re bringing a piece of City Hall to them."

Below are the dates and times as of now for the second round of "Strimling on the Street." Additional dates may be added in the future. Citizens can visit to see any schedule changes.
