Topic: Transportation and PBOT’s policy goals, funding, recently completed projects and projects in the pipeline for east Portland.
Timur Ender is a capital project manager at the Portland Bureau of Transportation. He began his career with the City as transportation policy advisor in City Hall working on Portland’s Vision Zero strategy, launching bike share, and transportation funding.
More recently, Timur has been managing transportation infrastructure projects, primarily in East Portland. These projects are funded through a variety of sources and aimed at improving safety and health outcomes, increasing the capacity of Portland’s transportation system, and maintaining the City’s infrastructure. These projects generally involve safety improvements on high crash corridors, sidewalk infill, low-stress bicycle connections, and signalized pedestrian crossings, with an emphasis on reaching historically underinvested areas. Collectively, these investments are aimed at improving the quality of life of all Portlanders and making it easier for residents to access schools, businesses, parks, transit, and economic opportunity.

Coffee and breakfast goodies will be provided by the East Portland Chamber of Commerce.
