1221 SW 4th Ave Ste 230, Portland, OR 97204
I wish to congratulate Portland Bureau of Transportation Director Leah Treat on the exciting news of her future role as Managing Director of the world-renowned planning consultancy, Nelson\Nygaard.
Director Treat has been a visionary leader for the people of Portland at a time when that leadership was truly needed. She met the challenges of disruptive technologies, helped secure needed funding through a new city gas tax, and helped the city focus its safety efforts on Vision Zero. Throughout it all, Director Treat has been at the forefront of helping make Portland the incredibly livable and prosperous city we all know and love. Her impact will not soon be forgotten.
I have the utmost confidence in PBOT Deputy Director Chris Warner stepping into the Interim Director role upon Director Treat’s departure this summer and I look forward to working with the Mayor to begin an international search for her replacement.
Please join me in congratulating Director Treat and wishing her all the best in her efforts to make cities all over the world as equitable and livable as we know they can become.
