This is a confirmation for neighbors with an interest in learning more about alternative options being proposed by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) for improving unimproved streets. At WNA’s October 3rd meeting, we had a presentation on this topic by Christine Leon, PE, Development & Street Systems Management Division. Due to lack of time for a thorough discussion of neighbor’s questions and concerns, Land Use Chair Terry Griffiths arranged for a second meeting to be held Monday, October 22 at 7:00 PM at the Woodstock Community Center (5905 SE 43rd Ave). Rich Newlands, PBOT Project Management Division, will be present at this meeting to provide information and answer questions.
Visit PBOT’s Street by Street project website to learn more. You may also email christine.leon [at] portlandoregon.gov with your questions.
There will be a special election at the Woodstock Neighborhood Association monthly general meeting on Wednesday, October 3rd, 7:00pm, to vote on nominees Kenny Heggem and Becky Luening for co-chairpersons of the association. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend to make this official.
Woodstock Neighborhood Association is the featured organization at this Sunday’s (Sept. 23) Community Booth at the Woodstock Farmers Market. We plan to have a good variety of information and promo materials on hand and look forward to connecting with a lot of neighbors. Come on by our table to pick up a yard sign, bumper sticker or magnet, or just to say hello! This will also be our first in-person promotion of WNA’s Sustainability Committee, a.k.a. Sustainable Woodstock, and we will be asking folks to weigh in on sustainability project ideas. Hope to see you there!
