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 time to comment in support of Brentwood-Darlington’s Safe Routes to Schools and Greenway project is now through November 7th!
Below is a message from Meesa Long, the champion of this project:
Time for Comments in Support of our RFF Grant to Repair Duke and Flavel’s Sidewalks and get an Ogden-Knapp Greenway! There are chances to speak at meetings, but I will write about that more later.
To comment, or read about the meetings, please click on the link below. Then click the “Share Your Thoughts through Nov. 7th– Comment Now” on the right hand side and then “Begin Using Map”. Click on our project (the rectangle in the middle) and “Comment Now” on the left hand side. You can write as many comments as you want. I recommend at least three per person to really stack it – one for Duke, one for Flavel, and one for the Greenway. Of course, add as many other comments as you like!
We have come so far, and this is a simple task compared to what we have already pulled off, so please comment, comment, comment!!! Thank you!!!!
