PSU Graduate students in Urban Planning invite you to take a survey about walking and bicycling in Southwest Portland. The goal of this survey is to understand the perspectives of residents and visitors to SW Portland neighborhoods.  The survey is part of a class project by Masters of Urban and Regional Planning graduate students at Portland State University. The survey will also inform Southwest In Motion, a short-term refinement, prioritization and implementation strategy by Portland Bureau of Transportation for planned active transportation (walking and bicycling) investments in SW Portland.

How to be Involved in Your Neighborhood

South Burlingame Neighborhood Association is involved in many events. Some neighbors like to organize events like picnics and block parties. Others prefer to work around environmental issues, where neighbors participate in park cleanups and stream restorations, while other neighborhoods are involved in land use issues, carefully monitoring livability concerns. All activities make a difference and there is bound to be something that appeals to everyone, find out how you  can get involved. Please contact our Chair.
