Bike Lanes on Ocean Ave - Important Neighborhood Meeting TONIGHT

Hey, wouldn't it be neat if Ocean Avenue looked less like the photos on the left, and more like the photos on the right?

If you'd like to have bike lanes on Ocean Avenue between Payson Park and Woodford's Corner, come out to tonight's neighborhood meeting at Cheverus High School's library, at 6:30 pm.

"This meeting will dictate the outcome of whether or not bicycle lanes get established on Ocean Ave between Forest and Washington," says Katherine Earley, Portland's city engineer.

I know it's raining, but that won't deter crankypants neighbors who think that extra on-street parking is more important than bikes. Buck up and show up!

I used GIMP, an open-source photo manipulation program that's similar to Adobe's Photoshop. But it's free.
