I recently traveled to the Oregon Active Transportation Summit in Salem, Oregon. I was so inspired by the keynote presentation Beyond the Automobile by Mark Gorton (which I happened to videotape) that I wrote a commentary piece for The Oregonian in hopes that I could help spread Gorton’s liveable streets message beyond the choir and also to connect it to the local transportation policy debates around the Columbia River Crossing and free parking in Portland.
