Report from the CRC Open House

The first open house leading up to the DEIS (Draft Environment Impact Statement) options choice was held Saturday in Vancouver (an earlier event was canceled due to weather and will be rescheduled). There are two other open houses currently scheduled.

Turnout seemed reasonably strong and as in other rounds, there was story-telling and activities for kids to complement the presentation boards and staff presentations.

The comment form for this event consists of twelve questions with agree/disagree check-boxes. As we did during the last open house process, we’ll have a series of posts here to go through these individually, with the opportunity for thorough discussion. We’ll then submit the full discussion to the project staff for inclusion in the public comment record.

I’ve also take the opportunity to put the task force meetings for 2007 on the Portland Transport Calendar.
