We will be integrating your feedback and releasing an updated policy by March 2nd for further comment.

Who’s Involved:

The City strives to work hand-in-hand with community members and groups to ensure that our efforts meet the needs of those we aim to serve. While many of these efforts are led by the City, there are also some that are led by community groups with the City in a support role. These sorts of efforts take advantage of community interest, knowledge, resources, and passion, while potentially keeping costs low(er) for the City and the public.

The Pedestrian Advisory Committee (PAC) advocates for pedestrians by reviewing projects that effect pedestrians to ensure that the City of Portland meets pedestrian design guidelines, advocate for safe access, support education and outreach, and develop policy and plans to better meet the needs of pedestrians.

The Pedestrian Advisory Committee holds monthly meetings on the third Thursday of every month. Check out PAC's website to learn more about meeting agendas. 

SW Trails is working closely with the City of Portland in the development of the Community-Initiated Trails Process. SW Trails is a community group which promotes walking and biking in southwest Portland. They lead regular monthly hikes, organize volunteer work parties, and strive to develop new walking and biking opportunities.
