Just got some great news from ODOT Government Liaison Shelli Romero. She says the City of Portland will receive a $75,000 Transportation Growth Management Grant to be put towards our Bicycle Master Plan update.
According to Romero, the funds were awarded on a competitive basis and the City of Portland’s application was the highest ranked out of 27 applicants.
This will help bolster city bike coordinator Roger Geller’s ongoing effort on the update process. Congratulations Roger!
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
