SE 45th Ave Paving Update

Update on the SE 45th Avenue Repaving and Restriping project from Scott Cohen at Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT): 

Repaving is scheduled to begin on September 13th, 2019. The project is scheduled for 14 days of work, however some additional signage and striping work may continue after the paving. The work and schedule are weather dependent.

Video from April 18th, 2019 Alternate Walkways Meeting with PBOT

Couldn’t make it to our April 18th, 2019 meeting on Alternate Walkways with Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)?  Here is partial video of the meeting to discuss types of alternative walkways, especially along Safe Routes to School, in Brentwood-Darlington!  Hosted by the Land Use and Transportation committee of Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association (BDNA) with special guests from Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT).

(We are aware the video quality is pretty bad, but felt the audio was important. We’re working on better technology to connect our community to advocacy opportunities. Are you great with video and want to volunteer with BDNA? Contact us at brentwood.darlington@gmail.com!)

Alternate Walkways in Brentwood-Darlington

Why: Our neighborhood needs safe places to walk and many of our streets lack sidewalks. The Portland Bureau of Transportation is proposing several new types of Alternative Walkways as an affordable way to create safe places to walk. Sidewalks can be so expensive that the City can’t afford to install them, leaving us with mud or gravel and no safe place to walk.
 
What: Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association and the Portland Bureau of Transportation are hosting a conversation about building new Alternative Walkways in our area. You are invited to join us, learn more, and provide your input on which types of walkways would work best from your perspective.
 
When: April 18th from 7:00pm – 8:30pm
 
Where: Brentwood Darlington Community Center, 7211 SE 62nd Ave. Portland, OR 97206
 
Who: You, your neighbors, and friends.  Everyone is welcome!

PedPDX Plan Still Available for Review!

Did you miss our PedPDX View + Review Party with Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT)?  Don’t despair!  There are still more events (see map below) and ways to participate!

PedPDX is Portland’s Citywide Pedestrian Plan. It establishes a Priority Pedestrian Network based on equity (race and income), safety (crash and crash risk factors), and demand (neighborhood centers and corridors). It also proposes new strategies and policies to advantage Portland pedestrians. This work is the result of public collaboration since early 2017. PedPDX could turn the tide on leveraging resources for significant pedestrian safety and access where it’s needed the most. PBOT is gathering additional public feedback to enhance this work before bringing it to City Council in June.

Join PBOT to watch short videos about PedPDX to learn the context and content of the plan, enjoy some delicious local food, and contribute survey responses to leverage your voice, needs and opinions. All attendees will receive a FREE PedPDX flashlight carabiner!
