It's warm outside, and that means time for summer community events, summer concerts, and street fairs. It’s the time of year when we see more of our neighbors and get to soak up all of the great things that make Portland fantastic in the summer.
When you’re out and about, I hope you’ll stop by and chat with BPS staff at one of these upcoming great outdoor events. We’ll be sharing tools and resources, answering your questions about recycling, composting and reuse, and mapping out neighborhood treasures as part of the Comprehensive Plan update.
Come map with us! Look for the Comprehensive Plan Update table at Good in the Hood, Sunday Parkways and National Night Out, among others. Then show us on a map the special places in your neighborhood, how you like to get around, and where you would most like to see more or new businesses or parks. For the young and the young at heart, we’ve also got a travel postcard you draw on to provide an image of your favorite Portland place. Share your drawing with us, and we’ll share it via our Facebook page and website.
Hope to see you this summer at the following community events!
• June 23 Northeast Sunday Parkways
• June 29 Good in the Hood
• July 28 North Sunday Parkways
• August 6 National Night Out
• August 17 Multnomah Days
• August 25 Southeast Sunday Parkways
• September 29 Southwest Sunday Parkways
