We held our second npGREENWAY Community Meeting last night. I am pleased to announce that it was a great success. Many in attendance were willing to commit to “ambassador” roles to community groups they are involved in. Our agenda included the following:
- Metro’s Proposed 2006 Natural Areas Bond Measure
- City of Portland River Plan River Concept
- Waud Bluff Trail (Trail from Willamette Blvd near U of P down to Swan Island)
- Portsmouth Force Main portion of East Side CSO (Big Pipe)
FUNDING: npGREENWAY has applied for partial funding via
Portland Community Vision Project Their website reports 142 applicants.
CALENDAR:Upcoming Events, Opportunities for Involvement,
Review Calendar and Schedule Regular Bi-monthly Meetings,
We are pleased that a meeting attendee who is a web developer by day has volunteered to help us transform npgreenway.org into a website worthy of this cause. If you would like to lend additional support through your graphic design skills or web development skills, please let me know at email@example.com
Thank you everyone who attended the meeting. We are more excited than ever about the promise of achieving the vision of npGREENWAY!
Did the group specify when/where the next meeting would be?
Thanks for asking, Pete. We did not set our next meeting date that night. We are currently planning the date and time. We did decide that we would like to meet every other month, provided that there is new information to discuss. Therefore, our next meeting will be toward the end of March. We plan on it being in North Portland, hopefully closer to the Swan Island area. Is there a night of the week that works better for you? So far, our meetings have been on a Monday evening and a Tuesday evening.
