St. Johns area residents are hopeful that soon they’ll have an on-street bike corral installed downtown.

Longtime neighborhood activist Joe Adamski says he has met with the City of Portland’s Office of Transportation and members of the local business community on the project.

The exact location of the new bike corral has yet to be determined, but it will likely be installed somewhere on N. Lombard Avenue in the heart of the St. Johns business district — possibly adjacent to Proper Eats Cafe (8638 N Lombard St) or the St. Johns Theater (8704 N. Lombard) near N. Alta Avenue.

Another possible location, according to an article in the Portland Sentinel, is an unused parking space near the Starbucks at N. Lombard and Burlington.

Way to go!

Pretty soon we will need a map of all these bike \’parking lots\’ when shopping – or at least marked of future PDOT bike maps.

PS. Yesterday our office of Neighborhoods was in Vancouver and Portland giving a quick tour of City Repair sites … and the representatives of the Cities of Everett, Seattle, etc. were impressed when they passed the two Belmont bike bulbouts (and the green bike boxes on Hawthorne – something extra I threw in while navigating between sites).

thanks for the support and encouragement. I just want to let everyone know its (the corral) in progress,but it will take some time getting everything approved and raising the money. We have some very strong possibilities for funding, and the business community has been behind us all the way. However, it does take time. So I will let everyone know when its time to cut the ribbon..but in the meantime, support your local businesses ,on bike.. demand,beg or cajole good facilities. And let those businesses that are supportive of cycling/cyclists that you appreciate them doing their part.
