This is it, the week that the Portland to Milwaukie MAX Steering Committee makes its formal recommendation on a route, a bridge location on the Willamette River, and on station locations!
As far as spring cleanups go, we thought this was going to be the worst due to the unseasonably cold and wet weather we have been experiencing for weeks. How could anyone get out in their yards?
As has been reported earlier, many changes are coming to the transportation infrastructure in Brooklyn.
Agressive drivers now have one less Brooklyn neighborhood street to use as a traffic signal bypass. A long-term closure of SE Long Street went into effect on Thursday, June 5th. This change was proposed by area residents, championed by Commissioner Sam Adams, approved by 100% of abutting property owners, and accepted by the City of Portland, Ofice of Transportation.
Mark your calendar and consider volunteering. It’s time for the Brooklyn Neighborhood Cleanup.
- WHEN? THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 2008
9am – 3pm
- WHERE? 16th & SE Center
The end of the public comment period for the Milwaukie MAX project is quickly approaching. People have until Noon on Monday June 23rd to submit their comments and concerns. All comments that are submitted by this date will be included in the Final Environmental Impact Statement.
Future plans for a light rail station near the intersection of SE Harold Street and McLoughlin are now in doubt. As plans move forward on the proposed Milwaukie MAX Project, a vocal minority has cast a cloud of doubt on a station in this area.
