How Does North Portland Connect? Transportation Summit

Discuss transportation in North Portland at new group kickoff event:

The North Portland Transportation Partnership (NPTP) will host a kickoff event on September 19th featuring Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek and Portland City Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who will head the Portland Bureau of Transportation as of September 4th.

Oregon Department of Transportation and Portland Bureau of Transportation staff will be on hand to present information about transportation projects happening in North Portland. The event is open to the public and free to attend.

NPTP is taking a fresh look at the issues affecting North Portlanders who ride, bike, drive, roll and walk in and around our neighborhoods. The partnership seeks to take a collaborative approach to transportation issues and to create a shared venue for residents, businesses, government organizations and others to discuss and influence transportation projects that affect us all.

At the kickoff event, NPTP will connect community advocates, residents and transportation officials who share mobility concerns that affect North Portland.  Attendees will have a chance to ask questions and engage in informal interactive conversations about transportation issues.

Anyone interested in getting involved prior to the event should contact Mary Jaron Kelley with North Portland Neighborhood Services at mary@npnscommunity.org or 503-823-4099.
