Sorry for the second email. I wanted to
(1) remind you of the open poll on where to post Bikes May Use Full Lane signs in Portland, and
(2) let you know of another meeting this week that was overlooked in this morning's summary:
Transforming Forest Avenue: Public Meeting
The Final (3rd) public meeting for the Transforming Forest Avenue study is coming up on Thursday October 27th 6:30pm-8:30pm at Woodfords Church, 202 Woodford Street in Portland. The meeting will be in Seely Hall. Please park at the Parish Hall and proceed to the rear of the building.
The purpose of this meeting is for City Planning Division staff and the Forest Ave Public Advisory Committee (PAC) to present the plan recommendations, to field remaining public comment and/or questions and to go over the review process going forward as the plan proceeds to the Portland Planning Board and City Council for consideration. *Please note that any upcoming Planning Board and Council Meetings will also be open to the public and public comment is generally taken.
The study area extends from the intersection of Park Ave and Forest Ave, along the Forest Avenue Corridor, and through Woodfords Corner to the railroad crossing. The recommendations contained in the draft plan address land use, streetscape improvements and transportation and are based on:
* Information and analysis compiled by the study team,
* Visions, values and priorities for the corridor expressed by the Public Advisory Committee (PAC) and participants at the first two public meetings, held on May 12th and June 22nd 2011.
* Comments and ideas submitted through the project website or directly to the Planning Division, and
We encourage you to visit the project website for more information and background materials.
We hope you can join us on October 27th to hear more about the plan and to let us know what you think. You can also submit comments anytime via our online comment box at the Forest Avenue website or by contacting the Planning Division at the number or email listed below.
