Northeast Portland Pedestrian Safety Survey
How safe do you feel walking, biking or driving the streets of NE Portland? A team of graduate students at the Portland State University Masters of Urban and Regional Planning Workshop wants to know.
The Vision Zero project has identified the Boise, Humboldt and King neighborhoods for their relatively high number of pedestrian fatalities dating back to 1995, and are conducting a survey to figure out possible solutions.
The group will be holding Stakeholder Committee meetings for the public to attend from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on March 23 and April 20 at the OAME building, 4134 N. Vancouver Ave.
Surveys are available at NECN office at 4815 NE 7th Ave., OAME office and the BTA office at 233 NW 5th Ave. and online at www.visionzerooregon.org.
