The Latest – February 16, 2023

Hello friends,

The last 82nd Avenue Coalition was a success with deep and meaningful conversations. Thanks to The Grotto for hosting us at their beautiful site.

Guided by the values and goals we have identified in previous coalition gatherings, we are now looking to formalize our structure and invite individuals and organizations to become formal coalition members. Keep an eye out for our charter document and an invitation to join!

Additionally, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Metro and PBOT for a series of neighborhood-specific conversations. From late spring to fall, we will be holding discussions about the PBOT 82nd Ave project, a proposed transit project, equitable development and anti-displacement, and the resources that each neighborhood needs. We look forward to continuing our work together to create positive change along 82nd Avenue.

This week the 82nd Ave Coalition teamed up with Multnomah County Commissioner Vega Pederson, State Representative Pham, Metro Councilor Hwang, and Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) staff for a walk along 82nd from Foster to Bybee, over to Glenwood Park, and back.

It was an opportunity to discuss some of the coming infrastructure improvements as well as goals for future investment as PBOT works on Building a Better 82nd Avenue. Follow the link to learn more about the project and take their survey.
