Community Impacts and Community Involvement

  • This funding was originally provided to Rose CDC through Representative Pham’s Legislative Office for “transportation safety improvements.” It was later determined that it would be easier for PBOT to receive the funds and administer the work. Rose CDC, and Rep. Pham’s office, will remain involved with the project and plan to do community outreach and engagement as part of this project. Any directly impacted parties will be notified by PBOT.
  • This project will be enhanced by an EPAP Partnership Grant that was awarded to PBOT and Rose CDC. This additional $20,000 will be used by PBOT and Rose CDC to do additional evaluation, placemaking, and community engagement as part of this project.

100% Renewable Goal

  • This project promotes the use of walking for transportation and recreation, and increases crosswalk visibility, and is therefore in support of the city’s climate and renewable resource goals.
