State Representative for House District 46 (that’s us, plus a few n’hoods to the north), Alissa Keny-Guyer, along with a couple of her legislative coworkers, will be hosting a “bike livability” tour through parts of outer SE Portland today. The tour begins in Foster-Powell, along the Firland Parkway (SE 72nd between Holgate and Foster), at 10:30 a.m., and will highlight some of the local transportation challenges we face, as well as some of the potential that’s stemming from local visioning and activism.
See Rep. Keny-Guyer’s letter below:
District Tour by Bike
This Saturday, Sen. Jackie Dingfelder, Rep. Michael Dembrow and I will co-host a bike “livability” tour.
We’ll start in Foster-Powell, which has suffered tragic pedestrian fatalities, and continue through Lents, Montavilla and Mt Tabor. Greg Raisman (PBOT), Shelli Romero (ODOT), Christian Smith, Marcel Hermans and other neighborhood activists will discuss local transportation challenges, recently implemented
solutions, and future visions for the area.
Stops will include the I-205 bicycle path improvements, elementary school bike facilities, and information about Portland Audubon Backyard Habitat
The total trip will be 7 miles, starting at the Firland Parkway (see right column). Join us for all or just part of it. Call Roberto at (971) 250-1367 that day day if you want to catch us part way through!
If you have any questions, please let me or Roberto know. We hope to see you soon!
