Tonight: Hawthorne neighborhood groups host traffic safety event


In light of all your concerns about traffic safety, we want to bring your attention to an event we just heard about. It’s a community forum being hosted by the Sunnyside & Richmond neighborhood associations and it’s happening tonight from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Alethia Church (4511 SE Main Street) in southeast.

The event flyer is above and here’s more from the organizers:

Hi Neighbors –

Following recent tragic events on Hawthorne Boulevard, Columbia Boulevard, Outer Division, and many other areas of the City, the Sunnyside & Richmond Land Use and Transportation Committees are hosting a special event this Tuesday, September 6th, from 7-9pm at the Aletheia Church (4511 SE Main St), two blocks north of Hawthorne & 45th.

Leah Treat, Director of the Portland Bureau of Transportation, Captain Crebs with the Police Traffic Division, Oregon Walks, and a panel of other guest speakers will discuss interim street safety solutions.

All are welcome to attend and lend support for greater traffic safety on Hawthorne Boulevard and across the City. Feel free to spread the word to help us bring 100 plus people to this event!

Learn more on their website.

We like the sound of “interim solutions” not just because we feel there are some relatively quick and inexpensive ways to improve these dangerous roads — but also because we know the City of Portland can act quickly when they want to.

Show up if you can and lend your ears and brains to this discussion. Sorry for the late notice. If you attend and can share thoughts and/or a recap feel free to do so in the comments below.
