The January North Tabor Friends of Trees planting was successful and gave a new home to more than twenty trees, including much- needed new trees along Glisan St. which will grow to provide shade and street-scaping. If you are interested in volunteering as a Summer Tree Inspector, to make sure new trees in the neighborhood do well, contact friendsoftrees.org.

The March 18 meeting of the North Tabor Neighborhood Association features a presentation on Portland Bureau of Transportation’s High Crash Corridor Program. Burnside from SW Barnes Rd. to East 67th is one of 10 designated high-crash corridors. The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 pm, Tuesday, March 18 at NorthStar, 5600 NE Glisan St.

Transportation Co-Chair, Terry Dublinski, is chairing a new group to work on solutions, CURBS, “Citizen’s United Rebuilding Burnside Safely.” If you would like to help, contact terry.dublinski@gmail.com .
