Reporting on Willamette Shoreline Transit Workshop

Yesterday’s O had a brief article on the workshop held on Tuesday.

The article focused quite a bit on the trail aspect, which is important (I looked at a bike map to see how I might get to the workshop by bike or a bike/bus combo, and concluded you can’t get there!).

But my favorite quote came from Lake Oswego Mayor Judie Hammerstad:

“The federal process we’re involved in says you’re supposed to look at everything before you make any recommendation, so I’m not supposed to say that streetcars are the answer,” Mayor Judie Hammerstad said. “But from what I know today, streetcars are the answer.”
