Park(ING) Day

On Friday, September 15, road safety advocates will hold a PARK(ING) DAY event in Montavilla. Community participation in the event is easy and essential to its success. People are encouraged to cross NE Glisan Street at 70th Avenue from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. During the day, this unmarked crossing will feature a temporary crosswalk and painted curb extensions, among other pedestrian safety measures. This frequently accessed intersection is near several popular businesses, including the Rocket Empire Machine food hall and Mudd Works Roastery. Neighbors have long requested more frequent and better-marked crossings along NE Glisan. This day-long event is an opportunity to demonstrate the need to city officials. 

Event organizers Strong Towns PDXCongress for the New Urbanism – Cascadia, and Montavilla/East Tabor Business Association will have people on site to talk about street safety and gather contact information for those who would like to continue the conversation around NE Glisan Street Improvements. We hope to see you there.
