Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and members of the Portland City Council and Oregon Legislature will gather at 8 a.m. Wednesday, April 3, to discuss plans related to safety on Southeast 136th Avenue.

Photo opportunities will available, and elected officials will take questions.

The Mayor has been under intense pressure to restore a proposal by PBOT to cut funding from a sidewalk project on SE 136th. Hales said he felt there was a 50/50 chance the funds would be restored… But that was before a young girl was killed while trying to cross 136th just a few blocks from where the sidewalk project was set to be constructed.

    “Media parking in all directions.”

    Too bad the media couldn’t be encouraged/assumed to get there by some other means.
