Tell Portland your transportation priorities at tonight’s ‘Transportation Town Hall’

First meeting is tonight! Join me at 6:30pm in SE Portland.

COP

Help shape the way the City of Portland thinks about — and ultimately funds — the future of transportation projects. The City of Portland is hosting “Transportation Town Halls” in February. Mayor Charlie Hales, City Commissioner Steve Novick, Transportation Director Leah Treat and other transportation staff will be on hand to listen to your thoughts on what types of projects should be high on the list.

There are three upcoming town halls to discuss current unfunded transportation needs, the first one tonight:

• Thursday, Feb. 20, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Sunnyside Environmental School, 3421 SE Salmon St.

• Tuesday, Feb. 25, 6:30 to 8:30 at Immigrant & Refuge Community Organization (IRCO), 10301 NE Glisan St.

• Thursday, Feb. 27, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capitol Highway

The meetings will have an opportunity to give input about your desired transportation improvements in your area, followed by a presentation on transportation needs and possible solutions.

Learn more at the city’s website: http://www.ourstreetspdx.com, where you can see the results of a recent phone survey indicating safety around schools, safe pedestrian crossings, and better bike infrastructure for all of Portland were high priorities for Portlanders (more coverage and analysis here and here), or contribute your thoughts through their online survey.

See you tonight!
