If you can, bring a treat to share


Approval of Agenda
Approval of Minutes from November meeting, see the web site.

Rich Newlands of PBOT will discuss the SW In Motion Project that he leads. We will also discuss the status of our efforts in each neighborhood to nominate key unbuilt right of way connections that will improve the walking connectivity and ability to get around in our SW neighborhoods.

We will also discuss potential new or revised greenway and urban trail routes and possible changes to the Major Public Trails map to make it serve our SW community better than has been proposed by PBOT and BPS.

Report on SW in Motion progress by respective neighborhoods contacts.

Since the Bridlemile Neighborhood has cancelled their 12/14 meeting, they have been invited to join us if they can.
