The City of Portland and Portland State University are teaming up for the 22nd year to offer the Portland Traffic and Transportation class. For ten weeks, this free class gives neighborhood activists the opportunity to meet with local policymakers, political leaders and planners to gain a better understanding of the metro area’s transportation system.
Class participants also work directly with former Metro Executive Officer and current Shiels Obletz Johnsen principal Rick Gustafson on their own neighborhood transportation or livability projects. Gustafson developed the class in concert with Congressman Earl Blumenauer and is a knowledgeable leader on transportation and community development.
The class fills quickly, so fill out the scholarship application today!
