For more than 40 years we have been promised a traffic signal at this intersection. Enough is enough. Only organized grassroots citizen activism is likely to bring enough pressure on our public officials to improve the situation at this intersection. Here’s a plan for action.
By unanimous vote of The Ashcreek Neighborhood Association, we respectfully request your reply to these grievances…
PDOT seems to apply its standards and policies inconsistently and capriciously, frustrating and upsetting many neighborhood residents. Two recent PDOT decisions aptly illustrate this point. They both involve the northern leg of SW 54th Avenue abutting Garden Home Road.
A request was made to 503-823-SAFE in March of 2006 requesting that SW 54th north of Garden Home Road be posted “No Parking” for public safety reasons. 54th is a 12' wide dead-end queuing street, and cars are too frequently parked along the street such that fire trucks and ambulances would be unable to proceed down the road. Additionally, a number of senior citizens reside on the northern end of 54th. On August 1, 2006 PDOT (Portland Department of Transportation) made this response:

This photograph, of a young buck, was taken in a backyard in the Ashcreek neighborhood. His tracks had been spotted a week before he posed for this picture, and he has been nibbling on zucchini in the garden since late summer. He also left behind “other” solid evidence of his presence in the neighborhood. If you should see young Bambi, please welcome him to the neighborhood.

Members of the Portland Public School Board:
The Ashcreek Neighborhood Association at its March meeting voted to let the School District #1 Board know we are very disappointed over the decision to close Smith School. The Ashcreek/Crestwood Community, which Smith serviced, accounts for a little over 9% of the entire Southwest Community.
