Change is finally coming to Southeast Clinton Street, and so are the heated emotions that often follow. (more…)

Get involved: Write letters to city leaders about SE Clinton

Below is info about an event being organized by Bike Loud PDX on Wednesday, 1/28:

We have reserved a meeting room at the Belmont Public Library, located at 1038 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard, Portland, OR on Wednesday, January 28th from 5:30-7:30pm.

Purpose of meeting: Gather to write individual letters to various members of the City expressing our opinions regarding SE Clinton.

This will be in the spirit of Ted’s postcard campaign. We will each hand write (or type on laptops) letters of 1-2 paragraphs or so. I’ll be bringing lined paper, pens, envelopes and stamps.

The first half of the meeting will be us writing letters. During the second half we can discuss new ideas and follow-up actions. One idea I have is to begin a petition in which we have the goal of reaching 1,000 paper signatures for a more livable Clinton Neighborhood Greenway.

Alex has advised that the bulk of our letters be written to:

Steve Novick
Leah Treat
