*216 Establish emergency speed for portions of Southeast Division

*216 TIME CERTAIN: 2:00 PM – Establish emergency speed for portions of Southeast Division from SE 82nd Ave to SE 174th at the city limits (Ordinance introduced by Commissioner Saltzman) 1 hour requested

In response to two pedestrian deaths in December 2016, the City of Portland proposes to lower the speed limits on Outer Division by 35 MPH to 30 MPH.

Outer SE Division is on the designated High Crash Network due to the high rate of crashes on this
street. This stretch of street east of SE 82nd is also located near Portland's Communities of Concern.
The traffic deaths and injuries on Outer Division greatly affect the diverse communities in the Jade
District, Division Midway Alliance and other communities in East Portland.
