Community Events - Portland area

Here is an email I just received for those interested

On Monday (December 14) in Lee Community Hall, you are invited to attend a UMA architecture class presentation of their work on developing a new gateway to Portland's East Bayside neighborhood. Working in three teams, the class has developed computer models and drawings to explore alternative approaches to redeveloping a new gateway to ?the Baysides,? including new buildings, streetscapes, and pedestrian bridges and trail connections.
The class presentation is scheduled for 1:00-4:00, with a reception following from 4:00 to 5:00. You are most welcome to attend as much of the event as your schedule allows. RSVP for the reception is appreciated by emailing Muskie adjunct professor Alan Holt at alan@communitydesignstudio.com.

for more information, look in All Muskie Matriculated Students in "Documents"

City plans public bike forum

* Portland Press Herald

PORTLAND?The city plans to hold a forum on Saturday, Jan. 9, to get public input on developing strategies to improve bicycling in the community.

One goal, according to a release put out this morning, is to help Portland become a Bicycle Friendly Community, as designated by the League of American Bicyclists.

This fall, the release said, the city was awarded an honorable mention for its application to be considered a bike-friendly community. The league suggested a number of ways Portland could improve ?bikability,? the release said, including an expansion of Bike to Work Day, increasing the number of bike lines along major arterials, improving public education efforts for safety, and incorporating bicycling issues/needs in planning and large-scale development.

The forum will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Merrill Rehearsal Hall at City Hall. Members of the public are encouraged to pre-register at http://www.portlandmaine.gov/plannin...ationbikes.asp.
