#BetterNaito Updates and Volunteer Opportunities

Greetings Friends of Better Block PDX,

Continuing the legacy begun by Gov. Tom McCall, the Naito Pilot Project expands the capacity of Portland’s beloved Willamette waterfront for all Oregonians.

Thank you to all those who volunteered during #BetterNaito. We're thrilled to announce that #BetterNaito will be returning for a second edition during the Oregon Brewers Festival.

From Tuesday July 21st at 6pm to Monday July 27th at 6pm, we will again create a new space on Naito for people to walking and bike separated from traffic. We've made a few changes this time, and #BetterNaito will be open to northbound and southbound bike traffic all week.

We would love it if you could help us make this project a success. We need volunteer help with setup, data collection, and cleanup
