Portland Plan Participants Vote for TransitDecember 22, 2009
Sarah Mirk at the Mercury beat me to an analysis I intended to present here, looking at the voting trends of Portland Plan workshop participants on the question of where to prioritization transportation investments.
As Sarah points out, transit was the cumulative vote winner, and I believe was the top vote getter in at least three of the seven workshops. But it did vary by neighborhood, with bicycle infrastructure on top in NE Portland and sidewalks in outer East Portland.
To be clear, the survey is NOT (and not claimed to be) scientific, and doesn’t really focus on what the City of Portland spends versus what other governments like TriMet and ODOT spend inside our city limits.
