An Hour with Sam

Commissioner Sam Adams is speaking at City Club on Friday in a presentation billed as “From here to there in tomorrow’s Portland”:

On Friday, July 20, City Commissioner Sam Adams makes his first appearance at City Club since taking office in 2005.

Adams will outline his blueprint for the future of transportation in Portland, including his vision 50 years into the future. He will speak about his plan for a city-wide streetcar system and how global events and our everyday choices affect transportation issues. In addition, Adams will speak about providing for Portland’s basic transportation necessities, including his plan to raise $263 million over 10 years for safety, bike, bridge and paving work.
