Community advocates present 7 great ideas for Portland transportation system
(December 2, 2014) - On Thursday evening, December 4th, 2014, seven community advocates enrolled in the Portland Traffic and Transportation class will present their proposals for improving Portland's transportation system. Presenters will address a three person panel made up of Portland Bureau of Transportation director Leah Treat, Commissioner in charge of transportation Steve Novick's chief of staff, Chris Warner, and Planning and Sustainability Commissioner and citizen advocate, Chris Smith.
The proposals span the entire city and include topics covering pedestrian safety, electric vehicles, high capacity transit corridors, and more. The community advocates will give brief presentations to the three panelists. Then the expert panelists will ask questions and lead a discussion on the project's benefits, challenges, and next steps for its fruition. Audience participation is welcome and encouraged.
