Overlook Neighborhood Update (April 1)

1) Help improve N Willamette Boulevard – Survey
2) Comment on the city’s budget
3) OKNA Board meeting


1) Help improve N Willamette Boulevard – Survey

North PDX Connected is an active transportation plan to improve safety and access for non-motorized travel within the N Willamette Boulevard corridor. They are seeking input from community members about how residents and users would improve Willamette and surrounding streets such as N Greeley Avenue and N Ainsworth Street. The anonymous survey takes about 5-10 minutes to complete.

Your input will be used by the project team — five students in Portland State University’s Master of Urban and Regional Planning program — to guide their final recommendations for the corridor. The project client, Willamette Corridor Mobility Coalition (WCMC), intends to present the plan to PBOT for implementation.

Take the survey here.

2) Comment on the city’s budget

It’s budget-writing season down at City Hall, and city council is hosting several forums to hear from residents about their priorities for city spending. They will come to North Portland on Tuesday, April 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Roosevelt High School, Commons (6941 N Central St.)

Testimony tickets will be available an hour and a half prior to start time. They will be drawn at random throughout the course of the event. Each speaker will have two minutes to address the Council.

Please see these links for details about the budget process and for other ways to make your voice heard:
