Bike Master Plan Update Kickoff Event Tonight

At Southeast Uplift:

Making Portland a World Class Bicycling City: Tuesday, August 29th, 6:30 p.m., Southeast Uplift

How has the City and its citizens made Portland the #1 U.S. city for bicycling? How can we join Amsterdam and Copenhagen as a world-class bicycling city? What do you like about bicycling in Portland? What would you like to see improved?

Join Southeast Uplift’s Bike Committee as we discuss these issues with City of Portland Bicycle Coordinator Roger Geller on Tuesday, August 29th from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Southeast Uplift, 3534 SE Main.

Tuesday’s meeting commences the public process for updating the City of Portland’s Bicycle Master Plan. The plan has not been updated since the mid-nineties. It is the City’s master document for bicycle policies and objectives and address almost every facet of biking in the City, including bikes and transit, educating and encouraging new cyclists, bikeway design and engineering guidelines, and the recommended bikeway network.

Geller will discuss the City’s bike strategies and successes of the last 10 years, lessons learned, and ask for citizen feedback on the next 10 years.

Questions: Steve Hoyt, Southeast Uplift, steve@southeastuplift.org, (503) 232-0010 x321.
