Portland, ORE. — Over the past year, Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability and Bureau of Transportation have been working with Cully residents, property owners, bike and pedestrian advocates, and the business community to collect and analyze data, and hear public opinions on the Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans project. Responding to the community’s desire for a neighborhood-serving main street and an improved street system, project staff will share the results of their work in a Proposed Cully Main Street and Local Street Plans Implementation Report to the Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) on May 22, 2012, at 6 p.m. This public hearing will be offsite at Rigler School Auditorium, 5401 NE Prescott Street. The public is invited to attend and offer testimony on the recommendations.

The PSC will review the report, listen to public testimony, discuss and make recommendations that may revise the report, which will then be forwarded to City Council for final action at a public hearing in July 2012.
