The Edge Defines the Center
Does the Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) affect our transportation system? You bet it does - how much we expand the UGB, and where, shapes growth within the boundary. And that drives demand for mobility in different parts of the region.
Which makes City Limits: Walking Portland's Boundary by David Oates an interesting read. It's not so much a planning book as a book about the soul of our region.
Courtesy of City Club of Portland, you have two opportunities to explore this book:
On Saturday, June 24th, City Club's New Leaders Council will host a boundary walk in Hillsboro with Oates and Metro President David Bragdon.
On Monday, June 26th, Citizen's Read, the Club's book group, will discuss the book.
Contact Tim DuRoche at 503-228-7231, ext. 103; firstname.lastname@example.org for info or to sign up for either event.

Thanks for posting this. Both events should be fun and informative. City Club will be organizing a carpool for those interested in the Boundary Walk but in need of transportation. I hope to see some Portland Transporters there.
