A hearing hosted by David Douglas High School in southeast Portland. In this Portland Development Commission/City of Portland planning hearing many people testified on several issues in regard to the coming FY 2012/13 year budget. Testimony sign up was so overwhelming that it took 2/3 of the meeting to get to most (but not all) of the people. A variety of community members showed up and issues such as school closures, community center closures, and homeless program cuts were discussed.
