The Transportation Committee focuses on transportation issues in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood, including auto, pedestrian, bicycle and transit concerns. The committee addresses a broad range of topics from safe bicycle and pedestrian routes, to TriMet services, to neighborhood parking, and more.
The Committee consists of all SMILE members (residents, businesses and owners of property in the neighborhood) who regularly attend Committee meetings.
