April 2nd Meeting Preview

7:00 pm at the Woodstock Community Center

All are welcome! Meet neighbors, learn about local happenings, and help make Woodstock one of the best places in the world to live!

On this month’s agenda:

Rich Newlands, Project Manager for the Portland Bureau of Transportation, will give a presentation on the 20s Bikeway project, which cuts through the southernmost section of Woodstock, and will be a welcome traffic-calming feature for that neighborhood.

Jacob Sherman, Chair of neighboring Brentwood-Darlington Neighborhood Association, will be on hand to inform folks about citizen efforts to address air quality concerns in our area and an upcoming community meeting to talk about the issue, sponsored by one of the known industrial polluters.

The Berkeley Park tennis court renovation undertaken by the Rovello family was covered in a previous blog post. Jennifer Yocom, Community Relations Manager with Portland Parks & Recreation, will be on hand on April 2nd to ask for Woodstockians’ encorsement of the proposal to permanently name the renovated court to “Alex Rovello Memorial Tennis Courts.” 

We’re expecting a brief discussion of the “Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro” motorcycle ride sponsored by the Sang-Froid Riding Club, and an update on the FREE “Get Ready for Anything” emergency prep workshop series coming to SE Portland in April and May. in addition we’ll have the usual reports from Crime & Safety folks, Reed College’s Kevin Myers, Woodstock Library’s Carol Uhte, and our very own Terry Griffiths, who will make a pitch for the May 10th Plant Sale, an annual fundraiser for the Friends of the Woodstock Community Center.
