Learn ways to raise awareness about traffic problems, change policy, and fund safety improvements (crosswalks, speed-bumps, etc.) on your neighborhood streets at the Traffic Safety Action-shop, Thursday, April 27th. Come with an idea about a traffic safety problem you want to solve and we’ll help you develop a plan for taking action!

Traffic Safety Action-shop brought to you by Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. and Neighbors West Northwest, is your opportunity to:

Connect with transportation experts: Workshops will feature a basic overview of transportation policy and funding, environmental design fostering safe and walkable communities, and communication and education strategies designed to change risky behavior. Presenters include staff from Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT), along with other professionals working in the field.

Hear from neighbors about what works: Neighborhood volunteers will share their own success stories highlighting how grassroots efforts have resulted in policy change, safer behavior, and improvements like sidewalks and speed-bumps, etc. 

Walk away with a plan for action: Participants are asked to come with a transportation issue or traffic safety concern they would like to tackle during the second half of the workshop. Whether the concern is broad and uncertain, or very specific, participants will leave with a plan for next steps to a solution. Come alone, or bring a buddy to work on a shared problem. All are welcome!

Accessibility: Workshop facilities are wheelchair accessible. For ADA and language translation requests, please call 503-823-4592 as soon as possible so that we can work together to address your needs.
