The Daily Journal of Commerce has listed its Top 10 Transportation Projects and it leads with a favorite of mine.
But my favorite is their name for the Columbia River Crossing – they call it the “Goldilocks Project” because it’s either too big or too small…
Last year there was an effort to form a Transit Riders Union. I don’t know the official state of that effort (someone please comment and tell us) but I understand that effort has factionalized somewhat.
OPAL is holding a monthly meeting from 6-8pm every second Tuesday (next up on April 13th) at their offices:
2407 SE 49th Ave, Portland
RSVP to 503 928-4354
I’m going to miss David Bragdon’s sense of humor when he’s termed out as Metro President.
They’ve done an April fool’s day agenda (I suspect it will hit the web later today) for the Council.
I can only wish this were real:
7.3 Resolution No. 10-4140, For the Purpose of Getting Real About the Columbia River Crossing.
Streetsblog has a nice piece on some very thorough research by the Center for Neighborhood Technology looking at combined house/transportation affordability.
