This summer PCC has a unique opportunity to partner with Metro for a class project and students who participate will have the chance to create a pedestrian audit adjacent to PCC southeast center based on best practices from CDC, safe routes to school, and spatial research. This audit will provide student based information on how good the 82nd/Division area is to safely walk from campus to key destinations.
This class project will contribute directly to the Powell-Division Transit and Development Project a community-based effort to bring a new regional transit investment to Southeast Portland, East Portland and Gresham that can be built in five to seven years.
