Event organizer, Kim Breckel did a wonderful job picking up the challenge of doing a Spring Break event, connecting with SOLV, contacting local property owners/managers and so much more! Kim’s comment on this post has some stats and kudos for the day.
Here’s a link to a story on the event and about MAXaction in general written by Michael Anderson of Portland Afoot with lots of pictures.
Clean ups are just one way we can work together to help make the MAX station areas more of a community asset, more welcoming, more usable, more safe, more ours. There are lot more ideas waiting to come to life – to be put into action. In particular, if you are a resident of a MAX station area or regular user, what would you like to do to make your station area more of a community asset – more of a good thing? MAXaction wants to help you make your idea happen.
All are welcome to the regular meeting at 7pm the third Friday of each month at Lifegate Baptist Church (208 SE 148th – just a block from the 148th Blue Line MAX station in East Portland). But, don’t wait to let us know what you are thinking. Make a comment here, or send a note. We want to partner with you. We want to walk your station area with you and hear your ideas.
