Portland Bureau of Transportation is considering livability projects around the city. One proposal would create a 14 foot wide paved path through the center of the NE 72nd Ave park blocks. This is in the exploratory phase and no solid plans are being considered. In other words, this is a perfect time to weigh in and make thoughtful suggestions.
A number of our neighbors were at the last RNA meeting to express their concerns. If you want to add thoughts, positive or negative, you can click on the map to leave comments.

Annual event celebrated across the country on the first Tuesday in August. On this day, neighbors host and attend small block parties or neighborhood events to strengthen their relationships with one another in the spirit of creating safer neighborhoods. Crime Prevention Program Manager Stephanie Reynolds says, “Neighborhood cohesion helps deter crime. Criminals want to be anonymous, to go unnoticed. When neighbors know and look out for one another, pay attention to what is happening on their street and report crime, it goes a long way towards creating a safe neighborhood.”
There may be a party on your street. A list of NNO parties will appear here. Check it out.
