How can the community continue to be involved in this project?

There is still a lot of work to be done. We look forward to continued collaboration with the community to design the project that is right for you.

We are committed to ensuring Black community members and leaders living, working, or with historic ties to the Albina neighborhood and broader N/NE Portland are able to participate in and actively shape the Project.

You will continue to see us online in active and meaningful conversations with people, with a focus on the Black community. We will use traditional and creative techniques, such as mailers and phone calls and working with community-based organizations and faith-based communities, to meet communities where they are. We want to foster a two-way dialogue that demonstrates how our conversations contribute to project decision-making.

Through our outreach, we commit to empowering our community with support of local, regional, and state government to influence project decisions and determine outcomes. We want you to hold us accountable for those outcomes. To do so, we are going to bring people with diverse backgrounds and expertise together to expand our community understanding. We will ensure the project addresses past harm with a present and future local, regional and state transportation system that meets community needs in a way that enables them to thrive.

We’ll be sharing information on the project and upcoming events in the mail, on our website, and in social media platforms. Stay tuned and please share these opportunities with your friends, colleagues, and networks – we need your help to make this a project for our community, by our community.
