Maintaining Portland’s Streets: Wrapping Up (for now)

We’ll round out our series this week with two references to info on CommissionerSam.com.

First, there are survey results up from the folks who attended Sam’s neighborhood coalition meetings. A couple of headlines:

  • Attendees would rather fund a solution to the whole backlog than a partial solution.
  • Top three preferred funding methods in order: Gas Tax, Carbon (Guzzler) Tax, and Street Maintenance Fee (with a parking space fee finishing just out of the money).

Next up, another round of neighborhood meetings in September is now on the calendar (literally, on our calendar):
