Opportunity for Public Comment
Improve your community – Weigh in on transportation projects starting May 8
Do you have thoughts on how to improve transportation in your community? Help us decide which bike, pedestrian, transit, road and freight projects to fund in your area and throughout the region. Through the Regional Flexible Funds program, Metro and cities across the Portland metropolitan area are working to select among 29 locally proposed projects and we want to hear from you. Which projects meet the needs of your community? How could the projects be improved?
From May 8 through June 7, Metro will be taking comments to help make a decision on which local projects to fund. We’ll also be asking for feedback on region wide programs as well as projects that support regional economic opportunity.
Project descriptions will be provided in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Russian.
Provide your comments at a public hearing
