no 33 || Great News!! $444,800 approved for North Willamette Greenway Plan

npGREENWAY Newsletter North Portland Greenway Trail Advocacy
2009 March 05 Issue no 033
We’ve been sending a lot of messages to the npGREENWAY community asking for your support. We have already expressed our gratitude for your response supporting the greenway in large numbers. This morning, we are very pleased to announce that progress has been made.
One of our volunteers attended a meeting of the Metro Joint Policy Advisory Committee on Transportation (JPACT) this morning where they presented their final recommendation to the Metro Council for projects that would receive Regional Flexible Funds (RFF). After a very competitive process the final recommendation was made; including $444,800 in project development funds for the Willamette Greenway Trail: N Columbia Blvd – Steel Bridge.

There are still some formalities to go through, but in our understanding, this was the largest hurdle that was remaining in the process. Metro Council is scheduled to consider the JPACT recommendation at its March 19th meeting, completing the process.
Your actions had a direct result on the outcome. This is acknowledged in a memo stating “TPAC considered the comments received during the public comment period. This was reflected by […] recommending funding of the North Willamette Greenway master plan; the project receiving the most public support from the public comment period.”
Thank you and have a great weekend!
