Pedestrianize Portland's main streets

Pedestrianize Portland's main streets

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

As we begin to relax our stay-at-home order, Portland's shops and restaurants will need much more space to safely reopen at full capacity in the coming months.

To solve this problem, we’ll turn our main streets—NE 28th, NW 23rd, SE Belmont, and more—into outdoor cafés, open-air retail, public plazas, and pedestrian promenades. 

In addition to boosting local business, pedestrian plazas make for a healthier and more social community. They’re places where people can meet with friends, people-watch, sit for a cup of coffee, or stroll with a lover in a beautiful, welcoming environment. They’re places for live music, dancing, and all sorts of exciting activities—socially distanced, of course.

Promenades are exactly what Portland needs moving forward. They are the physical spaces that will help businesses thrive and bring the people of our city closer together by having more fun—rain or shine!
