Debate Club: Columbia River Crossing

Posted by on March 24th, 2008 at 2:26 pm

The Bus Project and the Portland Mercury present for March’s Debate Club: The Columbia River Crossing.

The edge of Belmont
3350 SE Morrison St.
Portland, OR


Join the Bus Project and the Portland Mercury for our monthly hot topic debate with Dialogue, Democracy and Drinks.

What’s your take on what could be the largest public works project in Pacific NW history?

With Metro Councilor Rex Burkholder as Moderator and experts on both sides of the issue, (including economist Joe Cortright, Washington’s Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart, Jill Fuglister from Coalition for a Livable Future and a rep. from the Columbia River Crossing Task Force) come to find out for yourself what the options are for the Columbia River Crossing.

Who decides if we’re building a new I-5 bridge? What are the options on the table now? How much will it cost? Who is involved in the planning?

Contact Tara Sulzen at the Bus Project (503 233 3018) with questions.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you — Jonathan
