calls for northbound green-backed sharrows and
southbound buffered bike lanes.
A few weeks after taking the temperature of bike advocates and local retail businesses on its proposal to make 28th Avenue the city’s bike-friendliest commercial district, Portland is opening the debate up to the broader public.
The much-discussed stretch of 28th between Stark Street and Interstate 84, though, is just part of a 9.1-mile route that runs mostly on 26th, 27th and 28th avenues from Northeast Lombard Street to the Springwater Corridor, connecting many of Portland’s fastest-growing neighborhoods, Reed College, Concordia University, Grant and Cleveland High Schools and three major grocery stores.
Here are the three meetings, scheduled for late next week or early the week after that:
Thursday, March 13, 6-8:30 pm
Fremont United Methodist Church
2620 NE Fremont
Monday, March 17, 6-8:30 pm
Cleveland High School
3400 SE 26th Ave
Tuesday, March 18, 6-8:30 pm
Central Catholic High School
2401 SE Stark
