Parking is $5, and there's no published information on a Cherriots shuttle or bike corral. It may be, in fact, that there is only the dinky bike rack indicated by the map off of 17th Street.

Unfortunately, because of the fragmented jurisdiction on Lancaster, shared between the City and County, doing the same there will be more difficult. The neighborhoods adjoining middle Commercial here are also very different from the neighborhoods along Lancaster, and there may be very real equity issues in play.

The audit from the Secretary of State's Office, released Thursday, brings to light an open secret long lamented by reformers who worry that the lottery's billion-dollar returns come at the expense of problem gamblers.This has been at the center of the Portland Bicycle Transportation Alliance's statewide funding advocacy at the Legislature (see testimony from this year here), but the realities of funding things from lottery and video poker dollars are more than a little icky.
So-called "limited menu" purveyors — which pair wall-to-wall video gambling with cigarettes and bare-bones food options such as microwave burritos — have been free to flout state rules meant to keep retailers from earning more than half their sales from gambling, the audit found.
The South Salem Transit Center will be in part funded by these monies. Elsewhere, Eugene in particular cleaned up with funding for some terrific projects.
But these are not funding sources about which we should feel very proud. We really need to rethink funding transportation, and gas taxes and carbon taxes should be at the center of it.
