The City voted to accept $2 million in state funds for greenway parallel to 82nd Avenue. The proposed alignment appears to be on SE 78th Ave between SE Duke and SE Flavel streets within Brentwood-Darlington. More information to come as it becomes available.
Tomorrow is the 3rd Tuesday of the month and that means Land Use and Transportation Committee is meeting at Brentwood-Darlington Community Center (7211 SE 62nd Ave). Check our agenda below and join us from 7:00-8:30PM. You can also RSVP to this event on Facebook. Everyone is welcome!
BDNA NOTE: A representative from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will be at our August 2nd BDNA general meeting to talk about and answer questions for this project.
The E-zone Map Correction Project will adjust the location of Portland’s environmental overlay zones to match locations of existing streams, wetlands, steep slopes and vegetation as required by the new Comprehensive Plan. The environmental overlay zones protect natural resources that are essential for watershed health. The environmental overlay zones were applied to properties through officially adopted conservation plans around Portland starting in 1989 and completed in 2003. With the new Natural Resources Inventory in 2012 it became obvious that some resources that are supposed to be protected (like stream segments) are not, while other lands have regulations but no natural resources. This project will correct that. If your property will be considered for remapping as part of this project, you will receive a postcard in the mail. The postcard will let you know where you can get more information about potential changes on your property.
From Portland Bureau of Transportation:
Throughout the month of May, PBOT collected petitions of support for the Errol Heights LID, held meetings in the neighborhood with property owners, and answered a variety of questions and concerns about proposed changes in the neighborhood.
Errol Heights property owners have turned in 57 petitions supporting the LID. Waivered properties plus non-waivered supporters reached 62% (properties with waivers of remonstrance are counted as automatic supporters of the LID). Even if we didn’t count waivered properties as automatic yes votes, the LID still received close to 50% support (currently at about 48%).
While this level of support sends a strong signal to City Council that the neighborhood is behind the project, more petitions are always better. It’s not too late for your support to be counted. Petitions can still be mailed in using the prepaid envelope from the packet. Contact us if you need any help.
The date for the LID Formation Hearing at City Council is still pending but will likely occur in August or September. We plan on sending a followup email in July with more information.

Signal upgrades at Foster, Woodstock & Flavel
Project description: This project will install upgraded traffic signals and install sidewalk curb ramps that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards at the intersections of SE 82nd Avenue and SE Foster Road, SE Woodstock Boulevard and SE Flavel Street.
Schedule: Construction began in April and will continue through the fall at each intersection.
Traffic impacts: Currently, travelers should expect daytime single lane closures from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays at each intersection and pedestrian and cyclist detours.
The majority of the work will be performed Monday-Friday, 6 a.m to 3 p.m. Some night work may be necessary. Expect single lane closures at these intersections over the entire construction period. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be available and identified at each intersection, including access for people with disabilities. Some TriMet bus stops may be temporarily closed or moved during this period. For updated service alerts, go to trimet.org/alerts.

Project description: This project will remove old driveways and replace them with regular sidewalks at 17 locations along 82nd Avenue (near SE Main Street, SE Wodtock Boulevard, SE Harney Street and SE Clatsop Street). This means fewer tripping hazards, as well as less confusion for drivers about which driveway to use.
Schedule: Construction began in May and is nearly complete.
Traffic impacts: No traffic impacts.
