Who: ELGL members are invited to join WTS for a lunch forum with Commissioner Novick
What: Luncheon with Commissioner Steve Novick
When: Tuesday, Feb 18, 11:30 – 1 PM
Commissioner Steve Novick joined the Portland City Council in January of 2013 and was assigned the Transportation Bureau by Mayor Hales. As Transportation Commissioner, Steve inherited a bureau with a history of innovation and success in active transportation policy, with a strong commitment to equity, walkability, and bikeability; a solid partnership with TriMet; and a terrific staff. The bureau also faces a massive maintenance backlog, miles of unpaved streets, more miles of streets without sidewalks, and something of a “bike backlash” stoked by increasingly conservative local media. Steve believes that the future of transportation depends on our ability to make connections – both in the sense of strengthening our partnerships and articulating key connections for the public. Steve takes every opportunity to point out how much Portlanders spend on transportation and health care and how improved transit and active transportation can reduce those costs.
