Come talk with us at local events this summer
We are actively working with our federal partners to review and respond to the public comments received during the Environmental Assessment public review period that ended earlier this year. While the federal review process is underway, we are seeking additional community input to help define a vision for the covers over Interstate 5.
We have been out and about in the community to share project information and learn about your values and priorities. In June, staff attended the Juneteenth Celebration and the Good in the Hood Multicultural Festival. At these summer events, community members learned about project elements, asked questions and shared input.
Please join us at these additional events this summer to learn more about the project and share your thoughts:
- Alberta Street Fair, Saturday, August 10, along Alberta Street
- Green Loop Sunday Parkways, Sunday, August 25, along the Green Loop
- NE Sunday Parkways, September 22, 2019, in NE Portland
We are also planning other summer outreach activities including community discussions, an online questionnaire, additional in-person engagement opportunities and recruitment for a Community Advisory Committee (CAC). The CAC will be formed through an open application process later this year. The CAC will advise ODOT and the City of Portland on design aspects, meaningful engagement and equitable project outcomes.
