The City of Portland hasn't done this yet, but didn't it feel good to read that?
Apparently, some people feel so strongly about it that they are actively parking these cars on the street to make it happen. Personally, I do think it is past time for this to happen. The sidewalks are just no enough room for the art and thousands of viewers visiting the street. I am sure that the congestion on the sidewalks cause many families with small children to not attend.
Jonathan Maus at Bike Portland has the full run-down on this great idea. Can we donate funds to these people to get more cars and pay for their towing fines? Can anyone tell me a reason why we shouldn't support the closing of this street to cars during Last Thursday?
