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.
