Join SWTrails Volunteers in walking in the Multnomah Days Parade on Saturday August 18th. By 9:45 meet Hans, the fellow in the photo, who will be holding a SWTrails sign somewhere south of the bridge over Multnomah Blvd preparing to walk in the short parade. This is a good way to show support for the many efforts SWTrails makes to improve our SW active transportation infrastructure.
If you cannot walk with us in the parade, stop by the booth to talk about the improvements you would like to see in the area of SW where you live. We hope to get permits to improve several trails in the next year. Our booth should be on the south side of the street.
We are working hard to get the ridiculously difficult process of obtaining permits simplified. After nearly 3 years under the new rules, we have not yet obtained a permit to improve on a single trail that was not city funded.
