June 18th Meeting

Agenda and location information - the meeting is NOT at the Columbia School

Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at 7 PM

In the Recreation Room of the MEWS at North Harbor Building
905 North Harbor Drive, Portland, OR

New I-5 Bridge Draft Impact Statement - final proposals for the new I-5 Bridge

This is your last chance to become informed about the Columbia River Crossing Project and to respond to the draft impact statement. Representatives from the Columbia River Crossing Project will be present to discuss the five options presented in the Impact Statement. We will use their input and that of those present to prepare a statement from the Bridgeton Neighborhood Association and hopefully for other entities in our area.

We need to make our opinions heard. In addition to written statements from organizations, there needs to be many statements from individuals. We plan to make information available for people to prepare their own responses to a list of individuals and organizations that need to be contacted. We need to send e-mails and/or letters to the officials who are going to make these decisions. We encourage everyone to be heard.

Please attend this meeting to help make sure that our opinions on the CRC project are heard by the city, county, state, and federal officials who will be making decisions on our future. We need everyone to mail and/or e-mail informed responses before July 1, 2008.

Direction to the Recreation Room at the MEWS at North Harbor:

1) The recreation room at the MEWS is at the east end of the building. We will have a BNA sign at the open door. Go up the stairs to a large conference room.
2) There is limited parking on N Harbor Drive so many of us will walk west on the levee to the condo units, go down the levee on the east side of the units, and west to the first (east) entrance into the Mews.
3) Exit Marine Drive north onto N Harbor Drive (at the Subway) and circle west and north around the Harbor Court Apartments. Go past the main entrance to the Mews to the east side of the building.
