As you may have suspected, the Bridgeton Neighborhood Association General Meeting, scheduled for April 14, is canceled in response to state-wide restrictions against public gatherings during the Coronavirus emergency.
The topics for discussion at the April 14 meeting, while of interest, were not particularly time sensitive, with the exception of a presentation from the Oregon Department of Transportation regarding the scheduled I-5 Interstate Bridge closure this summer. Beginning with that topic, and moving on to the others, the BNA board will do all that it can to assemble and share the pertinent information on that project using digital media, so please do all that YOU can to stay informed.
On the topic of staying connected: As we practice our social distancing, let us not become so isolated that we do lose contact with each other. Please make the effort to check in on your neighbors — Are they healthy? Comfortable and secure? Remember that not everybody has internet access to reach out with or to stay informed. Not everybody has adequate long term savings to weather the coming economic slump without anxiety or worse. We need to support each other. Talk to your neighbor. From six feet away.
