As many of you know, Roseway Neighborhood Association has been gathering feedback related to traffic and safety related concerns in our neighborhood. We’ve received over 40 comments so far, collected at the July RNA general meeting and the Roseway Park Blocks Social in August. Thank you!
Here is one last opportunity to share your comments and concerns before we summarize all of the feedback and start working with PBOT and Portland Police Traffic Division on neighborhood wide solutions. Please follow the format below and be concise with your comments. Your participation and feedback are very much appreciated!
The Roseway (Shave Ice) Social is coming soon! We’ll have cool treats from Ono Shave Ice and delicious snacks from Mama Leo’s, plus live music entertainment! There’ll also be information on the next round of tree plantings at the park blocks and a second opportunity to comment on traffic/safety issues in the neighborhood. Hope to see you all there!
Tuesday, August 4th 6:30pm to 8:30pm The park blocks (72nd between Sandy & Prescott)
Due to a regrettable oversight by the RNA webmaster (that would be me) the proposed changes to the association by-laws could not be voted on at the July 14, 2015 general meeting because they had not been properly posted here on the website. Below is the link to the proposed changes. They will be voted on at a future general meeting.
My apologies for the inconvenience and embarrassment that my oversight caused the board and its chairman.
Walking around your neighborhood, do you see spaces to plant a tree, street trees in need of maintenance, and neighbors who are concerned about their trees but don’t know where to begin? Through the Tree Inventory Project, Urban Forestry is helping Portlanders take action to improve their community’s street trees, one neighborhood at a time. Here’s a link for more info.
Volunteers are guided by Urban Forestry staff, who provide training, tools, and event organization. Together, information is collected on tree species, size, health, site conditions, and available planting spaces. Data are analyzed by Urban Forestry staff, and findings are presented to neighborhood stakeholders at an annual Tree Summit at the end of the season in November. At the summit, neighborhood groups begin developing tree plans: They form a working neighborhood tree group and set achievable strategies to improve existing trees, expand tree canopy, and connect the neighborhood with city and nonprofit resources.
More than just producing data and a tree plan, this project brings communities together. Participating in the tree inventory project is a great way to meet your neighbors and connect with others who value our green resources!
Our Roseway inventory dates are:
8:30 am – noon
4:30 – 8:00 pm
8:30 am – noon
8:30 am – noon
