People’s Public Hearing On Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion
January 3 at 6:00 pm
This fall, No More Freeways sent ODOT a letter asking if ODOT planned to host an in-person public hearing for the proposed Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion.
Now that we’ve learned ODOT has refused, No More Freeways and our partners instead decided to host our own.
NMF will be partnering with local advocacy groups including the Eliot Neighborhood Association and Sunrise Movement PDX to host the “People’s Public Hearing on the Proposed Rose Quarter Freeway Expansion” at Harriet Tubman Middle School on the evening of Tuesday, January 3rd, 2023.
This event will include invited testimony from advocates concerned about the impact this proposed expansion will have on air quality, street safety, traffic congestion and carbon emissions in the Albina neighborhood, followed by open testimony from the public. Elected officials representing local, regional, and state governments have been invited to attend and listen to community concerns about this freeway widening proposal.
This event will be videotaped (and technology willing, live-streamed, on this page below) and tape of the People’s Public Hearing will be submitted to ODOT as part of the public comment for the Supplemental EA. No More Freeways has issued our statement about ODOT’s November 2022 EA on our Lids Not Lanes page.
This venue is transit accessible, ADA accessible, and we will be requiring (and providing) masks for all attendees.
