Making Portland More Bike-Ped Friendly

CS image 7The Complete Streets Group of Portland invites the public to an information sharing session on Thursday, May 28 at 7 p.m., at the Waverly Center (formerly Senior Center). After a brief overview by Kathy Herron on the Complete Streets movement along with the group’s mission and goals, the public will be asked to share their thoughts on areas in town where it feels safe and pleasant to walk or bicycle, as well as dangerous intersections, high-speed traffic roads, school walking routes, etc. – that they would like to see become more pedestrian/bicyclist friendly.
The information gained from this session will be used in developing a Complete Streets Plan for Portland and provide input to the town’s Plan of Conservation and Development, making it possible to enact positive change. If you are a frequent pedestrian/bicycle rider on the streets and sidewalks in Portland, we would like to hear from you! Please come and share your ideas on how safety can be improved and non-motorized modes of transportation can be encouraged in our town.
