PBOT Discusses Lombard Improvements at Next SALT Meeting – 10/3 at 7PM

TRUCK STRATEGY FOLLOW-UP / THE LOMBARD SECTION OF THE PLAN

Many of you have been following and/or involved with the improvements on St Louis and Fessenden. The community involvement has been integral and essential to getting what the community was promised – quite a success! It’s important to know, however, that the improvements in the plan extend beyond St Louis/Fessenden. As a result of moving all truck traffic onto Lombard (north of St Louis), there are improvements proposed to make it safer for residents who live on this highly impacted corridor. One of the most important are improvements to the “S” curve at N John Street.

Rich Newlands (PBOT) has agreed to come to talk to us at the St Johns SALT (Safety and Livability Team) and Land Use meeting Tuesday, Oct 3rd. 7pm. Center for Opportunity. Come with your experiences and ideas. Attached is a pdf that outlines what was proposed. The Lombard section (the “carrot”?) is towards the end. I’ll post a better diagram/map soon.

We hope to see you there.

THIS MONDAY – TRAFFIC SAFETY FORUM @ 7PM

St. Johns’ diversity, small town feel, and role as a freight/commuter corridor all inherently present very different traffic safety truths and experiences among neighbors. It is important all residents have the opportunity to be heard and acknowledged as we consider people’s safety and appropriate neighborhood comfort in each area of our large community. Within this context the St. Johns Neighborhood Association is hosting a Transportation/Traffic Safety Forum for the benefit and well-being of neighbors from all backgrounds and experiences.

Special Guests:
Ana Jovanovic – Oregon Department of Transportation
Margie Bradway – Portland Bureau of Transportation
Tina Kotek – Oregon State House of Representatives, District 44

St. Johns Community Center
7PM | Monday, Nov. 14th

SEP 6 – EPA SUPERFUND CLEAN-UP PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD ENDS

Portland Harbor is a 10-mile, 2,200-acre toxic site. In 2000, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) labeled it a Superfund site—a location contaminated by hazardous waste and identified on the national priority list for cleanup. The harbor, the Willamette River and its shores provide food for our families, jobs for our community, recreational opportunities, tribal and commercial fishing, and a rich source of culture and beauty. Now, more than 15 years later, the EPA has proposed to cleanup just 8% of a site that is 100% toxic.
