    If someone is at this today, it’d be great if you could post a brief recap. Oh, and K’Tesh, I hope you meant “Wednesday”, and didn’t show up yesterday. ;-)

    Yeah, I caught that Tuesday morning… I went on Wednesday.

    Heard a bit about what ODOT’s been doing with their flex funds, some stuff on safe routes to school, and programs designed to increase the amount of sidewalks/bikeways around the area.

    I of course brought up storm drains, and how, even now, they are failing us.
