Special Announcement on behalf of SWNI Watershed Committee
SW Portland Street and Stormwater Summit
This Thursday, September 29, 2016 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Multnomah Arts Center, Room 30, 7688 SW Capitol Hwy
SWNI’s Watershed, Transportation, and Land Use Committees are organizing a Street and Stormwater Summit to create open and on-going dialogue with city staff around the needs and opportunities of the transportation and stormwater systems in SW Portland. Building off the success of the recent Tryon-Stephens Creek Headwaters Neighborhood Street Plan, the Summit is a first step toward developing a Stormwater System Plan and funding construction of the much-needed stormwater conveyance infrastructure as well as sidewalks and bike paths on key streets.
SWNI volunteers want the City to work as a whole to solve problems. BES and PBOT have signed a Charter to begin working more closely together, and the Summit will provide an opportunity for members of the three SWNI committees and others to talk with key city staff about street improvement projects in our neighborhoods, what works well and how future projects could be improved.
Please join us this Thursday, September 29.
Bring your questions and suggestions about street safety and stormwater erosion issues.
