We’re gearing up for a tree inventory in the neighborhood this summer, and you’re invited to help! We need Team Leaders to help volunteers count and assess trees in small sections of the n’hood, and when summer arrives, we’ll be looking for your help making the inventory happen!
April 1: Sabin/King Tree Team meeting at the Freehouse at 6:30. Join and learn more about the inventory. We will be brainstorming site locations for each work date and plan on how to recruit volunteers. We will have the exact dates for the Inventory and will have to secure those before the next meeting.
May 1: Dead line for securing site locations for the specific dates.
May 2: Recruitment training with the City (optional). Learn what resources they will provide and learn how to get our community involved. We will brainstorm partners in the neighborhood for volunteer efforts.
June 10 or 13: Attend Team Leader Training. Choose an afternoon or morning session.
The Portland Bureau of Transportation will be hosting an open house event to finalize the design recommendations for the NE Rodney Neighborhood Greenway Project on:
Wednesday, April 1, ’15
6 – 8 PM
Immaculate Heart Church/ 2926 N Williams Ave
This will be the second of two open house events to review and comment on proposed improvements needed to make NE Rodney Ave between Broadway and Killingsworth a safe and convenient neighborhood greenway street for bicycles and pedestrians. Key issues include crossing safety treatments at major arterial crossings, such as NE Fremont and NE Russell, and traffic calming. The Rodney Greenway Project is funded through a grant received from the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Program in conjunction with the N Williams Traffic Safety Project.
Questions: Please contact Rich Newlands, Project Manager
Join us at 6:30 pm to talk safety, livability, and community in King.
We meet at the offices of NECN, 4815 NE 7th Avenue.
