East Portland

The Portland Bureau of Transportation is planning nearly thirty miles of neighborhood greenways in East Portland, but this will not achieve the goal of the Portland Bicycle Plan, which calls for 80% of Portland’s population to live within a half-mile of a low-stress street by 2030.

East Portland is home to over a quarter of the population of Portland, but the rates of walking, bicycling, and transit use in East Portland are far lower than the city average. Many places in Portland, east of 82nd Avenue, lack features that make walking and bicycling an option. We must prioritize building neighborhood greenways in East Portland to provide desirable and affordable transportation options.

You can help support safe, convenient, and accessible greenways in East Portland by signing our petition. You can also stay up to date by signing up to receive emails for the latest updates and involvement opportunities.

 

STATUS The Street Trust is committed to helping build new miles of low traffic, low stress neighborhood greenways, which include traffic calming and way finding, in East Portland. Building new miles of neighborhood greenways in East Portland will provide people with access to schools, churches, shopping centers, transit centers, the I-205 multi-use path, and provide east-west connections to Gresham and Downtown Portland.

We are working closely with community partners and members, leaders of East Portland, and The City of Portland staff, to support the East Portland in Motion Plan and help move forward neighborhood greenways projects that are community supported.
