Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability, the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO) and Oregon State Senator Michael Dembrow have urged citizens who live, work and visit Northeast and Southeast 82nd Avenue to participate in ongoing planning and transportation projects. A public meeting is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. October 10 at the Jade/APANO Multicultural Space, 8114 S.E. Division St. Doors will open at 9:30 am.
John Mulvey, communications chair for the 82nd Avenue Improvement Coalition, told the Hollywood Star News citizens can guide development along this major transportation corridor and business hub for decades to come. The coalition is an all-volunteer group of local citizens, business owners and organizations committed to safe streets, equitable development and a strong business environment on one of the region’s most important streets.
Portland Mayor Charlie Hales will attend and speak, and attendees will give public testimony on the City of Portland’s Mixed-Use Zoning and Employment Zones projects and discuss other issues and projects, including transportation, transit, housing and small business.
