This signature collection form is now closed. We hope to hear the results of the TGM grant application in Fall 2019.
Most of Brentwood-Darlington and parts of Mt. Scott-Arleta lack sidewalks, local commercial amenities, and adequate transit and street safety. The City of Portland’s Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is applying for a large state grant to engage the residents of our two neighborhoods in planning for improved transportation, housing, and economic opportunities. We invite you to support this application by providing your name and address. Add your email address if you’d like to receive our newsletter. Thank you!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org!)
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.
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.
If you missed the presentation on the 82nd Ave Study at our January 2019 meeting, then you’re in luck!
