Join us March 4 @ 11AM for a conversation about how we can help improve and adapt Portland’s public spaces —our streets, plazas, squares, alleys and promenades— to bring our community together and support economic activity as the city recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. How can we weave the pandemic experiments that temporarily transformed streets into places for people into the fabric of our daily lives?
Our partners at the Getting There Together Coalition having been rallying the community to call for an inclusive, transparent, process with meaningful participation from community members in the hiring of the agency’s next General Manager.
This leadership change provides an opportunity for the community to be involved in this essential hiring decision that will have impacts across the greater Portland region for years to come. The $1.5 billion transit agency serves 2.5 million people in the greater Portland area.
At the urging of the public, TriMet has embarked upon a public hiring process with opportunities for participation from community leaders — so let’s get involved!
Cycling is the most sustainable means of urban travel, practical for most short- and medium-distance trips—commuting to and from work and school, shopping, visiting friends—as well as for recreation and exercise. Cycling promotes physical, social, and mental health, helps reduce car use, enhances mobility and independence, and is economical for both public and personal budgets. Cycling should be made feasible for everyone and not limited to especially fit, daring, well-trained cyclists riding expensive bicycles. Cycling for Sustainable Cities shows how to make city cycling safe, practical, and convenient for all ages and abilities.
We are thrilled to have been selected as the Bag it Forward hunger partner with New Season's March-August 2021. Thanks to all who voted for us! Your nickel makes a difference!
