The North Portland Transportation Partnership (NPTP) will host a kickoff event featuring Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek and Portland Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, who heads the Portland Bureau of Transportation on Sept. 19, 6-8 p.m. at Kaiser Town Hall (3704 N Interstate Ave.). Oregon Department of Transportation officials also will be on hand to present information about proposed congestion pricing (tolling) on I-5 in North Portland. The event is open to the public and free to attend.
NPTP is taking a fresh look at the issues affecting North Portlanders who ride, bike, drive, roll and walk in and around our neighborhoods. The partnership seeks to take a collaborative approach to transportation issues and to create a shared venue for residents, businesses, government organizations and others to discuss and influence transportation projects that affect us all.
At the kickoff event, NPTP will connect community advocates, residents and transportation officials who share mobility concerns that affect North Portland. Attendees will have a chance to ask questions and engage in informal interactive conversations about transportation issues.
Please note that this is a change of location. The event had previously been announced in the Overlook Views newsletter to be held at University of Portland. It now is at Kaiser Town Hall.
