With a few allies in other neighborhoods, it’s possible to make huge changes to city neighborhood greenway plans. So step up — the time for your neighborhood association to shape the next round is right now.
Part of our series of guest posts, America’s Next Bicycle Capital, where we share community voices about the future of biking in Portland.
