Wednesday, February 6th, 2019, board members Chelsea Powers and Stephenie Frederick testified at City Council on behalf of accepting the intergovernmental agreement for the Safe Routes to School sidewalk infill grant. The motion passed with full support of the commissioners! Our thanks to the hard working folks at Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) for keeping this project moving through the lengthy process. Look for your neighborhood representatives after the 4:12:00 mark in the official City Council video linked below. To view the presentation given by PBOT in detail, click here.
The Portland Gravel Street Service is PBOT’s new street improvement service for Portland’s gravel streets. Through this free service, PBOT crews are filling potholes and ruts and smoothing out gravel streets across the city.
On Monday, January 7th, please join Chloe Eudaly Portland City Commissioner and PBOT’s Interim Director Chris Warner at 10 AM at SE Harney and 62nd. They will be highlighting the progress PBOT crews have made with this new service and celebrate the start of work in the Brentwood-Darlington area.
A budget is a reflection of priorities, and Multnomah County’s budget is no different. The programs and projects we invest in should be a reflection of our community’s values, concerns, and aspirations.
That’s why I’d like to solicit your top priorities. Please take a moment to identify your top concerns by filling out this survey.
With Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury scheduled to release her proposed budget on April 26th, I want to know your thoughts as we determine how best to spend the vital funding provided by hardworking taxpayers like you.
Just as last year, I’ll report back on the results, and your feedback will inform my thinking during the budget process.
You can find out more information about the county’s budget, as well as opportunities to weigh in during our budget hearings here. I encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns not only with me but also with my fellow commissioners.
Together, we can continue to make our community one we can be proud of.
