Portland has embarked on a new era of open streets. The success of Better Block coupled with budding citizen activism, livable streets believers at all levels of city government, and the demand for great public spaces has all come together at the same time. We are now in a time of unprecedented momentum when it comes to open streets events, projects, and policies. And you know what's really cool? The citizens of Portland - that's us! - are the ones who will shape this movement. Come to Wonk Night for illuminating discussions about: - The latest steps the City of Portland is taking to harness the open streets movement. - The big projects and policies on the horizon. - What advocacy groups and citizen activists are up to. - How you can be a part of this exciting new era. We'll bring the snacks and drinks. All you need to bring is an open mind. Featuring smart people from Oregon Walks, Better Block, Bike Loud PDX, PBOT, and more. 5:00 - Doors open 5:45 - Moderated discussion 6:30 - Break and mingling 6:40 - More discussion. 8:00 - Good night! *** Wonk Night is sponsored (and hosted) by Lancaster Engineering *** https://www.facebook.com/events/1547506868877448/
