Share YOUR story of navigating Portland's Ice and Snow

As the winter weather approaches, the Disability Program is partnering with the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) to encourage community members and businesses to clear their icy and snowy pathways. To do this, we’re asking for community members who would be willing to share their stories on how lingering snow and ice impact the accessibility, livability, and safety of Winter Portland.

We hope to share these stories as part of PBOT’s Winter Weather Tips and other winter-weather features.

If you’d like to share your story, please contact Joanne at joanne.johnson@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-9970.  

All Portlanders need to understand the vital role everyone has in creating a safe, accessible and mobile Portland this Winter. If you’d like to be part of moving Portland beyond “It Will Melt” and change the way Portland handles snow and ice, please get in touch!
