Cherriots Meetings and Other News

Last night City Council instructed staff to move forward with a small adjustment on the bicycle-free sidewalk zone. Hopefully I'll have a map later. The Statesman piece created lots of confusion - but happily Public Works stepped in with a map that showed the scope of the proposed changes. [updated with map. The sidewalk on Front to be opened is in yellow; the path under Commercial Liberty and through the Civic Center is in red.]

Over at Friends of Two Bridges, there's an announcement about Sanyo giving the City of Salem one of the first US hybrid electric bikes. Mayor Taylor will take one of the inaugural rides. Thursday, 12:30pm, at the Riverfront Park Pavilion.

Finally, LoveSalem has an extensive list of upcoming Cherriots meetings. The Town Hall meetings are:

  • Feb 19 Thu 6:30 – 8:30 PM West Salem Roth’s (1130 Wallace Rd NW)
  • Feb 25 Wed 6:30 – 8:30 PM Marion County Fire Station (300 Cordon Rd)
  • Mar 2 Mon 6:30 – 8:30 PM Leslie Middle School (3850 Pringle Rd SE)
  • Mar 3 Tue 6:30 – 8:30 PM McNary High School – Cafeteria (595 Chemawa Rd N)
Do check out the full list and make sure to attend. Cherriots is sick and needs everyone's help to make it better!
