The Portland Parks and Recreation Department, the Office of Transportation and the Police Bureau have officially announced a community meeting to address, “increasing concerns about high speeds and close calls,” at Mt. Tabor Park.
The issue has been simmering since April and originated from concerned neighbors and the Mt. Tabor Foot Patrol. They’ve noticed a problem of speeding in the park, especially on Wednesdays when it is closed to cars and bicyclists and pedestrians share the hilly roads.
Here are the meeting details:
- Wednesday, July 18
@ Mt. Tabor Park, Covered Picnic Shelter (across from the playground and restrooms)
6:00pm Meeting Starts
If you have questions you can call Officer Pickett at Southeast Precinct (503) 823-2143 or Doug Brenner, Portland Parks and Recreation East Portland Zone Manager (503) 823-5255). Directions to the park and more information on the Parks Department website.
