The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is excited to announce PedPDX, Portland’s Citywide Pedestrian Plan. The plan will prioritize sidewalks, crossing improvements, and other investments to make walking safer and more comfortable across the city. It will identify the key strategies and tools we will use to make Portland a truly great walking city.
To help guide development of the plan, PBOT is now recruiting Portlanders to apply to serve on the PedPDX Community Advisory Committee (CAC). PedPDX CAC members will serve as public officials for the duration of the planning process and provide feedback that will be considered for integration into the plan, which will go before City Council for adoption in approximately Fall/Winter 2018.
Application materials are available online. The deadline to apply is April 16.
The Overlook Neighborhood Association Board will meet on Tuesday to discuss events in the neighborhood. Highlights of the agenda include board members sharing their reactions to Mayor Wheeler’s presentation at the March general meeting and how OKNA will proceed with our lease on Union Pacific Land along N Greeley Avenue.
