The question is no longer, “Should we promote bicycling?”
According to City Club of Portland, the answer to that question is “yes” and it’s just a matter of doing so in a way that is safest and most efficient for everyone. That’s why this issue of procedure will be the crux of City Club’s meeting this Friday, June 7 at the Governor Hotel.
More specifically, City Club will vote on “No Turning Back,” the organization’s recent report on the state of bicycle transportation in Portland. The report — which many believe will garner a vote of confidence — will be accompanied by a minority report that seeks to implement a bicycle user license fee similar to that used for Oregon’s All-Terrain Vehicles.
While the overall vote will combine results from both the meeting and online voting for members who cannot attend, the vote on the minority report will only be in person.
The meeting will also feature U.S. Representative Suzanne Bonamici (OR-1) as a guest speaker.
