The folks behind an effort to transform a 35-acre parcel of land between the I-84 and I-205 freeways in East Portland into an urban, off-road biking oasis called Gateway Green, will unveil a “Bicycle Concept Plan” next month.
Back in February, advocates and supporters of the project met on site to map out possibilities and brainstorm how the land could be put to best use for biking.
East Portland parks advocate and the project’s main booster, Linda Robinson, got in touch recently to announce an upcoming open house to share the “Gateway Green Bicycle Concept Plan”. Along with this concept plan, at the open house project backers will announce the newly formed Friends of Gateway Green organization and accompanying website, GatewayGreenPDX.org.
At the open house on April 14 (more details below), individuals and groups will be able to join the new group (which is in the process of becoming a non-profit) to stay involved and to support the Gateway Green effort.
