City Council Transportation Committee: Tuesday 10/18

The Portland Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee will be delivering our report to the City Council's Transportation Committee tomorrow at their monthly meeting. We'll be first on the agenda at 5:30 and hopefully done by shortly after 6 pm, and it would be great if we could get at least a small crowd in there to show the Councilors some of the citizens who care about safer streets in Portland. Please come!

There's also lots of other interesting stuff on the agenda, including a proposal to park a new UCarShare car on Munjoy Hill, possibilities for a new train station on Thompson's Point, and the early stages of pedestrian-friendly revisions to the city's street design standards - it could be worth staying for the balance of the evening as well.

Either way, I hope I'll see lots of you there tomorrow!
