SAVE THE DATE: 4-13-21 RNA MEETING WITH PBOT TO DISCUSS THE 70s Greenway: Cully Connector project

This project, on NE 72nd between Sandy and Killingsworth, will provide better access for pedestrians and people biking, and reduce traffic and vehicle speeds on NE 72nd Ave. The project also includes safer crossings at busy intersections. Between NE Killingsworth Street and NE Prescott Street, new sidewalks and bicycle paths will safely connect residents to neighborhood stores, schools, and parks.

  1. I would like to attend your meeting. I live in the Rose City Park Neighborhood South of the golf course. Neighbors across the street are part of Madison South. Many of the people on my block utilize 72nd Drive through the golf course by car to get to the Safeway area of Sandy Bv. Removing motor vehicle traffic in one direction will increase VMTs and traffic on three other greenways, Tillamook, Sacramento and the 60s Greenway in addition to adding to fuel consumption to go around the golf course. It will also add traffic to 82nd Avenue, which is a high crash corridor and impact Madison High School and kids crossing 82nd to attend Roseway Heights. PBOT needs to step up do the right thing by constructing a multi-use path on the East side of 72nd Drive and with a new connection to the Sacramento Bluff – NOT make 72nd Drive one way!
