People across Portland have placed bright orange "20 is plenty" signs in their yards to promote the city's new 20 mph speed limit on residential streets.
PBOT has distributed thousands of the yard signs free-of-charge since February at pick-up locations across Portland. Yard signs are still available (up to 5 per person) at PBOT's office on the fifth floor of the "6th & Main/Congress Center" building, 1001 SW 5th Avenue, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
In addition to providing yard signs, PBOT is continuing to install new 20 mph speed limit signs to raise awareness of the change.

2018 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP)-Metro
The Regional Transportation Plan is a blueprint to guide investments for all forms of travel – motor vehicle, transit, bicycle and walking – and the movement of goods and freight throughout the Portland metropolitan region. The plan identifies current and future transportation needs, investments needed to meet those needs and what funds the region expects to have available over the next 25 years to make those investments a reality.

Southwest in Motion, (SWIM)
Southwest In Motion is a short-term refinement, prioritization and implementation strategy for planned active transportation investments in Southwest Portland. The final plan will identify a realistic 5-year active transportation action plan that provides basic walking and bicycling connectivity as well as access to transit improvements, where they are needed most.
- Coordination with active planning efforts, such as PedPDX, Portland's Citywide Pedestrian Plan, and Safe Routes To School Strategy and Project Planning.
- Coordination of past active transportation plans, networks and future projects. This includes the Portland Bicycle Plan for 2030, Southwest Urban Trails Plan and other citywide and neighborhood plans.
- Project list refinement. Changes to the project list may be needed to enhance network effectiveness and implementation feasibility.
- Evaluation and prioritization of the project list. The result will be a recommended set of short-term projects intended to enhance active transportation options across the Southwest district.
- Implementation planning. Strategic coordination between the recommended project lists and appropriate funding opportunities will support successful implementation of the plan.

Neighborhood Streets Program
PBOT-In Spring 2016 the City adopted the Local Transportation Infrastructure Charge (LTIC), a charge on new infill development occurring on these streets in single-dwelling residential zones. Based on community input, the Neighborhood Streets program framework has been developed to include additional program elements to further address deficient neighborhood streets infrastructure. Proposed elements are:
- Ongoing maintenance of gravel streets
- Neighborhood collector enhancements
- Residential Local Investment District (LID) enhancements
-Neighborhood Streets Program- Oct 2017 Powerpoint
-Neighborhood Streets Framework and LTIC -Oct 2017 Document
