Existing road shoulders will be preserved and enhanced where possible to allow for improved pedestrian use. The drainage improvements will help filter pollutants and reduce peak flows, helping to protect stream channels. They also improve roadside drainage and may reduce maintenance needs.

This unpaved section of SW Coronado is a 50-foot wide public right-of-way containing a footpath. The City of Portland's Bureau of Transportation and Bureau of Environmental Services have visited the site and determined that a more permanent trail would be a good use of the right-of-way. However, PBOT will not grant a permit to a non-profit group such as SW Trails to develop a more permanent trail at this time due to opposition by some of the adjacent neighbors.

Jessica has volunteered to lead the event and would like some help in making it a great party this year. The plan is for an evening dessert social in the field behind Stephenson Elementary School where there is room for kids to play. There will be live music and ice cream. Portland Police will stop by with a patrol car that kids can check out and Portland Fire and Rescue will bring a fire truck to liven the party.
NNO promotes crime and drug prevention in neighborhoods on the first Tuesday in August. When neighbors gather and know one another it sends a message to criminals that the neighborhood is strong, organized, and people care what happens. Neighbors meet and interact with neighborhood police officers and firefighters. Younger kids enjoy exploring the City of Portland's fire truck and police car. Getting to know who lives around you, and being in tune with your neighborhood is an important step in safety and crime prevention. National Night Out is a great way to build community, and an opportunity to show you care about your neighborhood.
This National Night Out party is coordinated by Portland's Office of Neighborhood Involvement Crime Prevention Program in partnership with Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc., Portland Police Bureau and Portland Fire and Rescue.
Be part of this national event, have some fun with your neighbors, and create a safer community.
