Agenda. FOCUS WILL BE ON STORMWATER MANAGEMENT AND HOW IT AFFECTS THE COST OF PEDESTRIAN AND BICYCLE IMPROVEMENTS in SW PORTLAND

BES will present their plan for treating street stormwater on Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy, and Wendy Cawley of PBOT will tell us how the plan fits with future pedestrian improvements along the route.  Join us at 7pm at the Watershed in Hillsdale 6388 SW Capitol Hwy, enter between the buildings.

This will be followed by a presentation by Al Iverson on a different tact for addressing the storm water on Capitol Hwy from Multnomah to Taylors Ferry Road by designing a complete system to manage storm water in the entire 82 acre area surrounding Capitol Hwy. This suggests it may be possible to install a sidewalk and bicycle lanes without rearing up the entire street to bury huge storage pipes to hold the storm water from the 6 acres along the route until it can be metered into the creeks. This approach to stormwater management might reduce the costs of the Capitol Highway project significantly. It will also provide needed stormwater management to a much larger area.

Interesting ideas, Ross Swanson of PBOT, the Capitol Hwy project manager is planning to join the discussion. The Citizens Utility Board, the group appointed by the Portland City Council to oversee and monitor the BES and Water Bureau activities, will have one or more staff present.

JOIN US FOR AN INFORMATION FILLED EVENING.

We will address other issues as time permits:
