A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to be part of the panel providing feedback on student presentations at the PSU/City of Portland Traffic and Transporation Class (a training ground for transportation activists that yours truly is an alumnus of).
Under an agreement with the class organizers, Portland Transport is the official online respository for these presentations. So here is this year’s crop, with the exception of one presentation that I will feature later in the week.
- Thomas Rousculp would like to make a short portion of Ankeny Street downtown car-free (PDF, 794K), at least part of the time
- Erica Bjerning want to improve bike safety on Foster Road (PDF, 294K) by implementing a streetscape plan that’s on the books but not yet funded
- Dan Clark would create a new class of bicycle boulevards (PDF, 4.8M – Dan needs to work on brevity) in NE Portland to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety and re-energize neighborhood streets.
- Joyce Casey wants to lower speed limits (PDF, 1.6M) on her stretch of SW Boones Ferry Rd. (but will it make a difference if the street isn’t re-engineered?).
- Andrew Neerman and Jason Powers would like to add a bike/ped bridge over Sullivan’s Gulch at 7th Ave. (PDF, 3.4M) (will folks who want an auto bridge there block the idea?)
- Michelle Debalak wants to drive sustainability at PDOT (PDF, 411K) from the inside out.
Stay tuned for the featured presentation!
