The meeting previously scheduled for Tuesday, November 14 has been CANCELED. Please plan to attend our STNA Board Meeting at 7 p.m. on November 16 instead.


 No current land use proposals to discuss.

Powell-Division Safety and Access to Transit Project. This is a series of enhanced pedestrian crossings including at Powell and 57th, 61st, and 79th and at Division at 64th and 77th. In October, I gave public comment for the third time to TriMet’s board on behalf of STNA, expressing our frustration with the slow pace of this project and with changes that just came to light — specifically that crossings that were originally planned to be signalized will now not be (only the one at 79th will be). You can watch the testimony below (starting at 33:20):

A representative from TriMet will be at our board meeting on Thursday, November 16 to discuss the project in more detail. Please attend to learn about the current plans, timeline, and funding and to ask questions and air any concerns.

– SE 59th Ave. and Woodward Visioning. Immediate neighbors are discussing possible options for traffic-calming (donut-preventing) features at this intersection. Stay tuned!

Mt. Tabor Maintenance Yard project updates. From the looks of things at the worksite, the groundwork for the multi-use path has reached Division. At a past meeting we learned that PP&R employees do not currently have on-site parking for their personal vehicles. In the meantime, some of them are parking on the street in South Tabor. Please help keep an eye on their vehicles and report any theft or vandalism to the police.

October updates from the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. I’ll change this to show November updates once I see that those have been posted.
