From Multnomah County Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson:
Dear friends & neighbors,
A budget is a reflection of priorities, and Multnomah County’s budget is no different. The programs and projects we invest in should be a reflection of our community’s values, concerns, and aspirations.
That’s why I’d like to solicit your top priorities. Please take a moment to identify your top concerns by filling out this survey.
With Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury scheduled to release her proposed budget on April 26th, I want to know your thoughts as we determine how best to spend the vital funding provided by hardworking taxpayers like you.
Just as last year, I’ll report back on the results, and your feedback will inform my thinking during the budget process.
You can find out more information about the county’s budget, as well as opportunities to weigh in during our budget hearings here. I encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns not only with me but also with my fellow commissioners.
Together, we can continue to make our community one we can be proud of.

Do you support a shared street design or a sidewalk on one side of the street?
The biggest design question that we are currently working through is whether to advance the design with a shared-street concept or to include a sidewalk on one side. This design applies to 48th, 49th, 51st, Tenino Drive, and Nehalem. The rest of the streets in the project area require sidewalks. Several people used our yellow and red dot map at the open house to indicate their preference, and we’d like to hear from everyone else.
To help inform the decision, we have put together an info sheet about both designs available for download here.
If you haven’t already, please take a few minutes to fill out our brief survey by January 5, 2018.
