I occassionally run into members of the Portland Transport community (those of you who read and comment) out in the real world at events like the recent Streetcar extension openning ceremonies. I enjoy these opportunities to put a face with an e-mail address or screen name.
Which makes me wonder if it wouldn’t be fun to get the community together occassionally in the real world, not just in the virtual world. This could be part social, part policy.
For example, the Columbia River Crossing project is doing community meetings on request. We could get together, maybe at a brewpub or coffee house, having a CRC session, and hang out afterwards, perhaps talking about future directions for Portland Transport?
What do you think? Drop a comment if you’re interested, and if we appear to have critical mass, I’ll work on logistics. Feel free to suggest venues.
