PedPDX: Portland's Citywide Pedestrian Plan

Dear PedPDX CAC members, TAC members, team members, PAC members, esteemed community partners, and contributing public participants:

On June 5, 2019, City Council received a presentation and heard public testimony about PedPDX. Council did not decide to vote on PedPDX at last week’s hearing and scheduled additional briefings with staff before adopting. On June 12, 2019, PedPDX was unanimously adopted by City Council. After two years of hard work, this plan would not be possible without your collective and significant contributions. In both the near term and many years from now, Portlanders will be experiencing the compounded fruits of this effort. You’ll be able to see them as new sidewalks go in where they’re needed most, as new crossings are installed to serve transit stops, as parking setbacks are designed into projects, and much, much more. As you see these, we hope you’ll smile and know how your participation shaped this into fruition.

Thank you. Thank you for what you’ve given of service to this city, for being the intelligent optimists and critical analysts, for sharing your stories and experiences as Portlanders who selflessly care, knowing that it’s the future generations who will reap the most rewards from this work set into motion at this time in history. We hope that many of you see your leading participation in this work as one of your many lifetime achievements.

With our forever warmth, awe, respect and gratitude,

Francesca + Michelle
