On behalf of the Commissioner Steve Novick and the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), I would like to invite you (and members of your community) to an East Portland Transportation Town Hall + Open House event. The meeting will provide residents and other East Portland stakeholders with the opportunity to meet with PBOT staff and learn about programs and projects that are delivering better, safer streets and other transportation upgrades to your community.

The event will include a special briefing about Fixing our Streets, the program funded by the new local gas tax that will provide significant improvements to streets, sidewalks, bike lanes, signals and safe routes to school in East Portland and across Portland. This interactive project map shares more information about the improvements committed across the city.

The meeting will take place on October 5th from 6 to 8 p.m. in the South Cafeteria of David Douglas High School, 1001 SE 135th Ave., Portland, OR 97233.
