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.

Over the past several months, the City Budget Office has been working with representatives throughout the City of Portland on a new citywide initiative called the Portland Community Insights Survey. This survey is a redesign of the Community Survey conducted by the Auditor’s Office until 2016 and is meant to provide City Bureaus and City Council with actionable insights to help inform budgeting and policy decisions.
This survey will give us the opportunity to hear from people who rely on us each day to make sure Portland is a great place to live. It includes questions on policy and budget priorities, satisfaction with services, ideas for improvement, and service usage patterns. Insights from these responses will help us build a stronger, more equitable city.
Please share the survey link as widely as possible and encourage those in your respective networks to make their voices heard: www.research.net/r/PDXspeaks
If you have any additional questions, please contact Shannon Carney at Shannon.Carney@portlandoregon.gov. Thank you in advance for your support with this important initiative.

The 82nd Avenue Study: Understanding Barriers to Development, referred to as the “82nd Avenue Study,” focuses on understanding the challenges of and exploring opportunities for new development in the corridor as we consider potential transportation improvements. The 82nd Avenue Study describes the development potential of properties along 82nd Avenue and identifies barriers that can be addressed in the near-term — with an eye towards long-term solutions.
The goals of this study are:
The 82nd Avenue Study is not intended to be comprehensive planning effort for the corridor. Rather, it will complement the many other projects also happening in the corridor and build on collaborative efforts. Following this study, City Council could direct staff to generate a more robust future “82nd Avenue Plan,” in partnership with community stakeholders.
The 82nd Avenue Study recommends near-term actions and future planning and investment efforts:
