Life is no Holiday on Primrose Lane

Why are so many cars turning onto SW Primrose from Terwilliger?? This two-block stretch between Terwilliger and Boones Ferry Road carries more than 400 trips per day ― which is surprising unless you live in east Collins View.

Primrose Greenway locations 135, 136, 137, 138

There is a plethora of dangers and problems near this Lane. (BTW, it's really a STREET.)

Enter the PDX Greenways “Slow Street Safe Streets” program. Neighborhood Greenways are slow, calm residential streets that prioritize people walking, bicycling, and rolling. You can learn about the program and view an interactive map of about 300 locations at PDXgreenways.com. Primrose and Terwilliger, location 135, was identified as a problem years ago in the SouthWest In Motion (SWIM) study.

Nextdoor is a private social network for Collins View and nearby 'Hoods

Thousands of folks across many neighborhoods are set up on Nextdoor. You can set up your login by validating your street address — then you can view and participate. There is a lot of non-association chatter on NextDoor, so it is difficult to use for official business. Our 'signal' often gets lost in the 'noise'.

See our Sign-Up instructions [LINK]. Thereafter, login into Next Door, and you'll land in the Collins View context. (Our Instructions page also has a mini-orientation.)
