Today we look at what inner South East Portland is doing to promote sustainability in the Hawthorne District as well as the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood including Ladd’s Addition. The “Green Streets” program addresses rainwater (an issue in Portland, Oregon) while at the same time making our streets safer and more attractive to pedestrians and bicyclists. The plan is fairly simple; to put green spaces between car traffic and pedestrians which will absorb an estimated 74,000 gallons of rain runoff water yearly. Additionally, the placement of these green spaces will give pedestrians & cyclists shorter street crossings while giving drivers more visibility of pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Not only that, Realtors applaud the plan which includes improving the marking of bicycle lanes, helping the environment and beautifying our streets.

These Green Streets will benefit the Hosford-Abernethy neighborhood as well as the Clinton and Hawthorne District, not to mention historic Ladd’s Addition.
