Gateway Green Crowdfunding Gets Serious Traction
All information from the North West Trail Alliance
Wow! in just a little over two weeks, the Gateway Green crowdfunding campaign has raised over $66,000, 2/3 of the way towards the $100,000 goal! And with almost 500 individual contributors, the campaign is demonstrating the wide range of support for Portland’s first outdoor bike park. And if that weren’t enough, both the City of Portland and Multnomah County recently passed resolutions designating October 1st Gateway Green Day! In recognition, Hopworks on Powell will host an event celebrating this landmark next Tuesday from 4-6pm, so come on buy, have a beer and a burger, and learn more about the project.
