Is there a similar project for NE portland? There are a ton of STREETs that are gravel roads full of pot holes and trash that people dump there. Can we get some help in NE Portland!?? Please look at 85th & Beech Street and fix that street...and maybe think about sidewalks on beech from 85th -87th... lots of people have to use the street to walk on and it is dangerous.
