PBOT receives national recognition for Neighborhood Greenways

People riding on a Neighborhood GreenwayPortland’s Neighborhood Greenways were selected as a best practice for a community speed reduction case study by Health Resources in Action (HRiA). HRiA helps people live healthier lives and create healthy communities through prevention, health promotion, policy and research.  

HRiA, in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council and with support from the National Network of Public Health Institutes and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, created a collection of best practices resources to help other communities implement similar community-wide speed reduction strategies. A case study was developed to illustrate the success of Portland’s Neighborhood Greenway initiative and show how other jursidictions can achieve traffic safety goals through similar efforts.

According to HRiA, PBOT’s efforts illustrate that speed reduction can be successfully integrated into a multi-faceted program that engages residents and achieves a safer and more inviting road environment for people walking and biking.
