Portland Green Streets Celebrates Our First Year – Sept 26th!

Monday, September 8th, 2008

This upcoming Green Streets Day, Friday, September 26th, is also the 1st Annual Celebration of Portland Green Streets.  We started out in mid-September of 2007 and it’s been quite a year – so now it’s time to celebrate!  (Mayor Suslovic will be delivering the City’s Green Streets Day proclamation at 5:30!)
