SIGN-MAKING FOR A SAFER CLINTON GREENWAY Link FF
Piccolo Park, SE 28th between SE Division & Clinton Take Trimet
11:00am - 3:00pm
We'll provide the markers and glitter, you provide the message! Safer Clinton has a lot of fun events planned for the Clinton Greenway 30th B-day Celebration and we're hoping this will mean a lot of new cyclists both young and old on Clinton. However not everyone living on and driving down Clinton, particularly the through-traffic, is going to know about these events, so let's tell them! Whether the sign is for your front yard or to stick on your bicycle/vehicle, join us in getting the word out that there will be a lot of young/new cyclists on Clinton so please slow down and be extra cautious
