The North Portland Greenway Trail is on the cover of the “InPortland” section of The Oregonian today. The exposure for the project is an important boost to the project — whose backers need more political support to make it a reality.

Last night in North Portland the community got an update on npGreenway’s vision for a new riverfront trail that will someday link the St. John’s Bridge to the Eastbank Esplanade.
A group of of about 25 citizens, trail advocates, and neighborhood leaders came together to offer feedback, find out how to get involved with the effort, and get the latest scoop.
