City embraces community-driven recommendations, receives grant to advance Portland Monuments Project
A significant investment by the Mellon Foundation enables the City of Portland to move forward with recommendations on an inclusive community engagement process and determine the future of Portland’s monuments.
The report from a committee convened by Lewis & Clark College includes recommendations for how the City should evaluate current and future monuments.
The $350,000 grant award is part of the Mellon Foundation's $250 million initiative to foster a more complete telling of who we are as a nation.
A thorough and inclusive process will help Portland City Council determine the future of monuments in the City.
