Reminder: A Wonk Night tomorrow about bike parking reform

A group of believers in low-car real estate development will meet at Lancaster Engineering Tuesday night (tomorrow!) for a free, wonky evening of creating “the manifesto for how we’ll turn Portland into the easiest place in the world to park a bicycle.”
That’s the description from organizer Chris Smith, a citizen activist who serves on the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission and also makes the trains run on time at the Portland Transport blog.

The event, which is sponsored by Sportworks and Omission Beer, is 5:30 to 7:30 pm at 321 SW 4th Ave #400. Smith has gathered a set of city policy documents (PDF) that we’l discuss and look for ways to reconcile and improve.

You can read why this is important at our previous post. We’ll also be continuing to cover this issue as it develops.

Everyone is welcome and we’ll have free drinks and snacks. Join us!

Also, stay tuned for this week’s regular Real Estate Beat post: a look at two buildings targeting upscale, low-car apartment seekers.
