Our Streets Transportation Funding Conversation

Portland Community Conversation on Transportation Funding

In January, Mayor Hales, Commissioner Novick and city staff kicked off the Our Streets transportation funding conversation with neighborhood, business and transportation leaders to consider what it would take to ensure that our transportation system remains safe and well maintained. Hales and Commissioner Novick are co-chairing a Transportation Needs and Funding Advisory Committee, which met for the first time Jan. 7, 2014. 

The goals of this effort are:

  • To increase the public understanding of existing transportation needs and funding opportunities

  • To inform Portland’s City Council of the public’s highest priorities for funding unfunded maintenance, safety and other needs

  • To inform Portland’s City Council on the public’s views on revenue options

The process will include the following elements:

  • Formation of a Transportation Needs and Funding Advisory Committee comprised of neighborhood, business and transportation leaders

  • Utilization of public opinion research tools

  • A series of neighborhood and business meetings

  • Development of specific neighborhood based maps highlighting potential needs and potential improvements

  • A final presentation to City Council with a recommended strategy

If you have any questions regarding this effort, please contact Mark Lear (503-823-7604) or or Jamie Waltz 503-823-7101 or If you'd like to join the conversation on Twitter, follow us @PBOTInfo and use the tag #ourstreetspdx.
