Portland is hosting one of a series of regional conferences on Streetcars organized by Reconnecting America on Friday, July 27th. This will be the first of four such conferences, the others being in Denver, Madison and Charlotte.

But even more exciting, we’re planning to hold a session on local (Portland region) opportunities for Streetcar on the Saturday morning following (28th). For City of Portland folks this will be sort of a warm-up for the City-wide Streetcar System Plan starting this summer.

This is just a teaser. I’ll have more details soon. But start thinking about what your most promising Streetcar project might be!

We hope to have scholarships available to allow local citizens to attend the regional portion of the conference gratis (the local portion will not have a fee). Watch this space.
