Not sure if your city has them or not, it's up to you guys to make them and maintain them. In our city we have 4 portals that are about 50-100 feet apart that we have reserved as a noob training ground. Nothing gets put up past level one on these four portals. It gives the new guys something to do, and something that they can level up on their own. This is something that needs to be discussed in the ALL chat of course, we've talked to members of other cities where it worked for awhile, but then some got greedy and took it away. It's up to you, but it seems to be working here.
