Where to find your elected officials once City Hall renovation begins

A wall that says Council Chamber is blocked off with yellow caution tape. Beside it is a ladder and a large banner that says "Coming Soon."
To prepare for maintenance work and renovation of council chambers at City Hall, commissioners and the mayor will relocate to nearby City-owned buildings.

City council and their staff will vacate the building later this summer to accommodate the expanded 12-person council and four district council offices. 

Renovation of council chambers began in April. The next landmarks on the timeline include June and July 2024, when renovation begins of council offices on the second floor and mayor’s office on the third floor. 

Here is where you can find the offices of the current Portland mayor and commissioners while construction at City Hall continues:

To achieve more equitable representation across Portland’s neighborhoods, in November 2022, Portland voters approved amendments to the city charter, establishing four new voting districts and electing three councilors per district, for a total of 12 councilors. Voters also approved using ranked-choice voting for City elections. Councilors will legislate policy and focus on the needs of the constituents, as well as represent their district’s interests at City Hall. The mayor will be elected citywide and will be the chief executive of the City and will manage the day-to-day operations with a city administrator.
