City know what you think is important.
If you don’t, they’ll listen to someone else.
If these stats shock or surprise you, you should pay attention to the Portland Plan. Last adopted in 1980 (I was five!), the plan is a state-mandated update to our comprehensive plan that will define priorities and guide how to invest public funds for the next 25 years.
To garner input from folks like you and me, the City is kicking off a series of public workshops. The first one is tonight at Beaumont Middle School (4043 NE Fremont Street).
The City has launched a new website for the Portland Plan loaded with more info, including nine Action Areas dealing with a range of issues including “Transportation, Technology & Access” (not sure what Internet access has with bike mode split).
Find a workshop near you and show up to remind planners that bikes are an inexpensive and simple solution to many problems our great city faces. Because if you don’t show up, they’ll listen to someone else.
