Portland Green Streets is excited for the upcoming MaST General Meeting on October 25th. Please read the below announcement from MaST. PGS is considering this our October social, so we hope to see you there!
We Need Your Help to Coordinate Transportation Advocacy in the Greater Portland Region!
We don’t want the change of MAST to a more well-developed statewide organization to leave a vacuum of coordinated transportation advocacy in the Portland region. Greater Portland is rich with individuals and organizations working towards sustainable transportation options. With so much activity, it is crucial we are able to combine our advocacy efforts. The health of our community, economy, and environment depend on our actions. Do we want a transit rider union? How can we get more funding for active transportation and transit? How can we put pressure on local planning agencies and the towns in the Portland area to provide sustainable transportation options? On Tuesday October 25th from 6-8pm, please join us to:
· Hear from the Livable Streets Alliance (Boston area) regarding their regional transportation advocacy work and structure
· Meet representatives from local and state-wide organizations working on transportation issues
· Discuss how to best coordinate transportation advocacy efforts in the Portland region
· Define next steps for our local advocacy work
The venue will be Peloton Labs, at 795 Congress Street Portland Maine.
