The project team combined community input from thousands of Portlanders with feedback from City property managers and the Project Advisory Committee to develop the Discussion Draft. The Discussion Draft also draws on best practices, additional planning and visits to more complicated properties by environmental and off-road cycling specialists.
The Discussion Draft aims to support equity by bringing off-road cycling trails and bike parks to neighborhoods that have traditionally not had access to these types of places. The goal is to create more places to ride that are easy to get to from all neighborhoods by bike or transit.
The draft also includes recommendations to ensure people of all ages, skill levels, and incomes can take part in off-road cycling. The recommendations also incorporate best practices on how to design facilities to create safe and sustainable trails.
The result is a map of recommended sites for new trails and bicycle parks as well as many recommendations for how to create a safe, sustainable, and successful system.
You can comment through the interactive map, the online form, or in-person through Dec. 31, 2017.
