Dozens of village members joined State Rep. Tobias Read (D-Beaverton) and State Sen. Mark Hass ( D-Beaverton) for a bike float along Fanno Creek Jul 12, some towing children in trailers or roving along in pairs.
The second Fanno Creek Bicycle Ride and Town Hall started during Vose Elementary School and continued along the Fanno Creek/Greenway Park Trail, holding a mangle during a intersection of a route and Scholls Ferry road.
The city gymnasium was a possibility to correlate with village members while holding advantage of bike trails, Read said.
During a event, Read pronounced village members common some of their travel concerns, including with a intersection of SW Oleson Road, SW Scholls Ferry Road and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.
It’s transparent a intersection is an issue, though regulating it is a matter of funding, Read said. As chair of a Transportation and Economic Development Committee, Read pronounced he’d like to see a package that could support mixed projects, including the Oleson Road realignment.
“This is not a usually place where there is a plea and there is a need,” Read said.
Hass was accompanied on a float by his six-year-old son, and forked out how kids now have larger entrance to trails.
“We used to float on that,” he said, indicating to a bustling Scholls Ferry Road.
He pronounced hopes to see some-more people regulating biking and trails as a approach to commute, not only for recreation.
Jerry Jones Jr., a member of the Tualatin Hills Park Recreation District board of directors, participated on a float with his family. He was blissful to see families join a ride, and emphasized a significance of compelling area trails.
