Congratulations to our Survey #1 winners!
We received over 4,700 responses to our survey about the types of walking improvements that are needed most and the general locations where they are needed most. Plus we received feedback from events we attended in all parts of the city, all summer long, and in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Vietnamese. We're pleased to announce that with intention and effort, our survey responses reflect equitable participation among all five "quadrants" of the city.
Thank you to everyone who participated! We will follow up in a future update to share the results of your public feedback and provide more opportunities to meaningfully engage in PedPDX to make Portland a great walking city.
HUGE THANK YOU to our supporters who donated prizes:
Slabtown Tours, featuring A Night with Ghosts: Haunted Adventures in NW Portland
Portland Walking Tours, featuring the Best of Portland Walking Tour

Introducing our University of Oregon partnership!
We are excited to announce our partnership with the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) in Portland!
Andrew DeVigal, UO SOJC Chair of Journalism Innovation and Civic Engagement, will be teaching a class called Reporting within Communities beginning in January. Students in the class will focus on PedPDX!
Students will make their own videos that follow different people with different abilities from different parts of the city as they narrate what walking means to them, the challenges they face walking in Portland, and their hopes for Portland as a great walking city. We will use the videos to launch a social media campaign encouraging public dialogue about people’s own walking stories. These walking stories may be used throughout the PedPDX final report to bring home meaningful points about what we learned from public feedback during our planning process. Our goal will be to better understand the range and diversity of needs for our citywide pedestrian system and this is all in addition to our public surveys and other outreach and engagement work to inform the PedPDX Plan.
