URGENT for all parents - city traffic plan & meeting

recently learned that the City of Portland has plans to significantly and adversely affect the streets around the school. These changes could greatly affect the amount of traffic on our streets and potentially pose a safety risk to our kids. It is imperative that TIS’ voice be heard in the process.

The school has sent its own formal and detailed comments on the proposals, but we need as many parents as possible to provide public comment to the City on or before October 7, 2008. On that date, the City will host an “Open House” to invite public comment from people and entities affected by the plans.

You can have your voice heard in one of two ways:

  • Attend the Open House on October 7,2008 beginning at 5:00 p.m. through 8:00 pm and fill out a comment card. The Open House will be at 2100 SW River Parkway in the Willamette River Room; or

  • Send an email or letter incorporating your thoughts. The letter should be addressed to Art Pearce, the Project Manager. His contact information is:

Email: art.pearce@pdxtrans.org
Address: Portland Office of Transportation
Bureau of Transportation Engineering and Development
