Newport’s transportation system update needs you


Livability, walkability, multi-use paths connecting neighborhoods …

For many years, citizens have been looking forward to incorporating these concepts into Newport and beyond. Now is the time!

Everyone is invited to participate in Newport’s Transportation System Plan update starting this month. Visit Newport’s homepage at www.newportoregon.gov. Here, you can link to information and also register for the interactive virtual workshop on Saturday, Nov. 21.

The recently published TSP Update Technical Memo 7 predicts that: “Newport’s pedestrian and bicycle networks are not expected to significantly change by 2040.” If we don’t participate, that is what we will get.

The future is in our hands. Let’s vote for a livable and healthy future for our region with better, low-stress transportation planning.
