The Olmsted Plan and the Status of Portland's Parks
 
01:01:58
Presented on April 18, 2003 Charles Jordan, Director, Portland Parks and Recreation; Chet Orloff, Director Emeritus, Oregon Historical Society One hundred years have passed since John Charles Olmsted arrived in Portland. His mission was to design the site for the 1905 Lewis and Clark Exposition and to give the parks commission a plan for the city’s parks system. He completed both jobs admirably. His vision for Portland’s parks, the Olmsted Plan, emphasized a comprehensive and balanced system of individual parks connected by parkways that took advantage of our abundant natural scenery. This bold plan became a legacy upon which the city was built. To mark this centennial celebration, Chet Orloff of the Oregon Historical Society and Charles Jordan of the Portland Parks Bureau join City Club in presenting “The Olmsted Plan and the Status of Portland’s Parks”. Orloff, a former Peace Corps volunteer in Afghanistan and an adjunct professor of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University, will discuss the vision of John Olmsted as well as the significance of the Lewis and Clark Exposition. As director of the Parks Bureau, Jordan has been a leading advocate for a national movement to create more ‘close to home’ outdoor recreation opportunities. He will reflect on the importance of parks, their role in building communities and the future of Portland’s parks. A century later, the Olmsted Plan is considered a visionary a statement in urban design and park planning. Will this vision provide guidance for the next hundred? Join us!

The real reason streetcars are making a comeback
 
05:57
It’s mostly about economic development. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Starting in the late 20th century, modern streetcar proposals started rippling across municipalities in the United States. They’re touted as infrastructure carrying benefits ranging from the social to economic and the environmental. But these projects often make appearances in the news as costly, blunder-filled experiments in public policy. Cities are willing to bet big on this technology for its potential to develop the local economy. But there is some disagreement as to whether the streetcar is driving this progress, or if it is simply the result of planning *around* the streetcar. If you're looking for more information on public transportation and urban planning, here are a few links: This interactive map by Yonah Freemark and Steven Vance allows you to zoom in on all public transportation projects across North America. http://www.thetransportpolitic.com/transitexplorer/#6/38.617/-78.673 This paper by Randal O'Toole of the CATO institute looks closely at the policy winds that drives streetcar proposals. https://www.cato.org/publications/policy-analysis/desire-named-streetcar-how-federal-subsidies-encourage-wasteful-local-transit-systems For more information on New York City's streetcar proposal, you can check out the Friends of the BQX website here: http://www.bqx.nyc.

Yosemite National Park Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia
 
09:21
https://www.expedia.com/Yosemite-National-Park.d180672.Destination-Travel-Guides Yosemite National Park sits on the western slopes of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most visitors spend their time in Yosemite Valley, which despite being only 7 miles long and 1 mile wide, packs in more jaw-dropping scenery than just about any other place on Earth. Near the valley entrance stop at Tunnel View, and stand before a panorama that’s reduced generations of visitors to silence. From Tunnel View it’s just a short drive to Bridalveil Fall. Fed by snowmelt, the fall reaches its thundering peak in May. The Yosemite Valley ring road follows the banks of the Merced River, which shifts in character as it thunders from the valley walls, before gently winding across the valley floor. The ring road is dotted with trailheads that lead to 800 miles of hiking trails. The Four Mile Trail climbs the valley’s southern wall to two of Yosemite’s great outlooks, Glacier Point and Washburn Point. Further along the ring road is the trailhead for The Mist Trail, which offers stunning views of Vernal and Nevada Falls. For thousands of years, the Ahwaneechee had villages throughout this valley, but it was at the base of Yosemite Falls where their great chief resided. Take the one-hour hike to the lower falls, or spend the day climbing all the way to the upper falls. To the north of Yosemite Valley, is Tioga Road, one of the USA’s most scenic highways. Fill your lungs with alpine air at Olmsted Point, refresh yourself by the waters of Tenaya Lake, then spend the day at Tuolumne Meadow, the traditional summer hunting grounds of the Ahwaneechee. From its high country to its waterfalls, its towering sequoia groves to its valley meadows, Yosemite is an American story unlike any other.

On the Right Track
 
15:40
On the Right Track - Federal Transit Administration 1995 - Video VH-583 - In the 1970's the New York Times described Portland, Oregon as a city in the act of destroying itself. Freeway construction was dividing communities, inner city neighborhoods were deteriorating, air quality standards were violated one day out of three, and businesses were fleeing downtown. In the last few decades, Portland has made a remarkable turnaround to become one of the most livable cities in the country. This video documents the visionary leadership and strong citizen participation that led to a plan to revitalize downtown. The plan included a cap on downtown parking spaces, replacement of a downtown highway with a waterfront park, replacement of a 3-story parking garage with a public square, construction of a transit mall, implementation of a fareless downtown, and the halting of the proposed Mount Hood freeway project and using the money on a light-rail system. Portland continues to use land use, zoning, transportation, transit, and parking decisions as a tool to shape future growth.

Update: I'm applying my financial resources at this time into my own internet, another deep cycle battery, spare tires, an oil change, replacing my alternator belt, car insurance, replacement license plates, a battery charger, a 12 volt fan, and I need to probably get a 5 gallon water container - and im trying to think of what other base essential items that may benefit me in the weeks ahead. I'm going to a place near Dallas, TX (see google earth) and that is closer to a Oregon coastal city called Lincoln City, a place Im likely going to visit - Im looking for stopping points and other recommendations for places to go - With my Verizon jetpack prepaid internet device coming in the mail, I will be able to reach you with updates and that includes my 2 hour radio show on americanfreedomradio.com - I will attempt to produce a OTBTV episode from the road which will more than likely feature a hour of news and commentary like before but in a different setting and it will be faxed into PCMTV for replay.

Comfort Zones: Envisioning the Future of Our Public Parks
 
01:00:32
Presented on May 18, 2001 Jim Francesconi, commissioner, City of Portland "Urban open spaces are essential to the livability of any metropolis. Indeed, they are the lungs of the city. So, what does the future hold for Portland's respiratory system, our system of public parks? It is not an unreasonable question to ask as we stand just over the threshold of a new millennium. Public space itself seems to be shrinking. Neighborhoods are denser and the stock of open spaces has not kept up with population growth. Will the only public spaces built be commercial ones? Will our existing parks lose their vitality as the city becomes more crowded and less private? Not if the City of Portland can help it. This week, Parks Commissioner Jim Francesconi unveils the Parks 2020 Plan, which presents a broad vision for the role of parks and recreation over the next two decades. It affirms the central role of parks and recreation—building community and shaping the urban form—and looks at ways to strengthen that role. The plan identifies emerging trends, like extreme sports, and challenges, such as loss of open space, off-leash dogs, new and conflicting recreation demands, an aging population, increasing ethnic diversity, and poverty issues. In addition to exploring potential uses of existing spaces, the Parks 2020 Plan outlines new potential funding sources for future projects. Come to the Friday Forum this week and hear what the City of Portland has in store for our public ""comfort zones""."
Parking Preservation in Portland, Oregon
 
05:29
A short, 5 1/2 minutes exploration of Old Town Chinatown in Portland, Oregon within the context of the auto+parking lots=climate change and using the recent repaving of a parking lot in front of the newly renovated historic building now home to the NorthWest Pacific College of Art to illustrate why surface parking lots are major polluters; how they are wasting water in a time of drought; and what their contribution is to global warming. The option apparently offered by the Portland Development Corporation (PDC) is structured parking lots keeping us on the road for sometime into the future. The 2015 Portland Climate Change Plan is also briefly covered, highlighting what they are offering as a way to meet a carbon emission reduction of 80% by 2050 and interim goal of 40% by 2030. The illustration of "solutions" is by Blake Samper, landscape designer.

Two Mayors, Two Visions: How Conversations Can Change Communities

Presented on July 14, 2006 Tom Hughes, Mayor of Hillsboro; Tom Potter, Mayor of Portland; Jensine Larson, member of visionPDX Committee;Sheila Martin, Co-chair of visionPDX and Director of PSU's Institute of Portland Metropolitan Studies, moderator "What's now easily taken for granted—our urban growth boundary, investments in public transportation, Portland’s park system—were the result of careful foresight. Community members who thought to plan ahead and coordinate efforts for long-term progress came before us with these exciting ideas. Now, says Mayor Tom Potter, it's this generation's turn to create a vision for the future. Portland has changed significantly over the past 15 years. We've grown and diversified as a population. To keep Portland a great place, a clear vision is needed. How will we manage all of this growth in a way that harnesses all that's wonderful and minimizes negative consequences, to create a modem city? That's the question before Portlanders and Mayor Potter's recently convened visionPDX committee, a varied group of 48 civic leaders asking the community: Who do we want to be? Join us on Friday, July 14, as we hear from Hillsboro Mayor Tom Hughes about how our neighbor to the west developed its own community action plan. Then Mayor Potter will give the big-picture overview of what's happening here in Portland, while Jensine Larson fills in the details from her first-hand experience on the city's visioning committee, which you can learn more about—and participate in a community survey—by visiting www.visionpdx.com.

The Fields Park Groundbreaking-Pearl District 2012
 
23:44
Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) will hold a public celebration as construction begins on the newest city park, The Fields. WHEN: Tuesday, March 6, 3:00-4:15 PM WHERE: NW 10th & Overton The 3.2-acre park will include a children's area, dog park, large (1 acre) lawn, sitting areas, strolling paths, picnic tables, landscaping, and a Portland Loo restroom facility. The Fields is situated within the Hoyt Street Yards portion of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA). Salem's R&R General Contractors, owned and supervised by Jesse Rodriguez, will build the park. The project is scheduled for completion in 2013. Portland Parks Commissioner Nick Fish and PP&R Director Mike Abbaté will speak at the event. Numerous neighbors, community, and civic leaders are expected to attend. "We are excited to build this new urban green space, the third in a sequence of parks in the Pearl District," said Commissioner Fish. "It's a win-win: a new recreation area for families, and much-needed construction jobs for our community." Portland Parks & Recreation wants to recognize the project advisory committee members Keith Thomajin,Patricia Gardner, Lisa Hamilton, Anita Kissee-Wilder, Catherine Levi, Steve Pinger, Linda Salinsky, Jillian Smith, and Steve Young for their efforts in seeing the park through the planning process. Special thanks also go to Tiffany Sweitzer and all area neighbors and stakeholders. PROJECT BACKGROUND This is the third park that was outlined in the Portland River District Park System Urban Design Framework Study (January 2001). The study included planning and design concepts for four parks within the Urban renewal Area (URA) located between NW 10 and 11 Avenues, beginning at NW Johnson. The four parks include Jamison Square (completed 2002), Tanner Springs (completed 2005), The Fields, and a potential Riverfront Park. The Fields is situated within the Hoyt Street Yards portion of the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA).

Great Parks, Great City: Civic Collaboration Key to Portland Parks Success
 
01:00:24
Presented on June 20, 2008 Zari Santner "Vibrant parks contribute to what makes Portland a great place to live, work and play. On June 20, Zari Santner, director of Portland Parks & Recreation, will explore the richness of the city’s parks system and explain how she is addressing the challenges of managing park resources and distributing those resources equally. Portland Parks & Recreation currently manages 10,500 acres, 250 parks and 150 miles of trails. Despite this array, Portland’s lower-income neighborhoods, including Argay, Cully and Centennial, still do not enjoy the same level of recreational resources as other areas. Faced with “doing more with less,” the parks department has established community partnerships and innovative practices to maintain and grow its green infrastructure. These innovations include collaborations between Portland Public Schools and the Boys and Girls Club at the New Columbia facility in North Portland and partnerships with the 80 “friends” groups that operate such attractions as the Leach Botanical Garden and Pittock Mansion. Santner moved to Portland in 1980 and began her work in the public sector with Portland Parks & Recreation’s planning and development department. In 2003, Santner was named the bureau’s first female director."
Portland: Quest for the Livable City
 
06:02
Portland: Quest for the Livable City is a documentary film and educational outreach project produced as a collaboration of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and Northern Light Productions. Incorporating historic footage of Portland's growth as the self-proclaimed "City that Works," and recent interviews with city leaders and neighborhood residents during the battles over ballot measures on the land-use planning system, this one-hour documentary film chronicles the complex challenges of aspiring to be a more sustainable metropolis with a smaller carbon footprint. As cities across the country today attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, invest in transit, and focus on infill redevelopment as an alternative to car-dependent sprawl, the experience of Portland provides a cautionary tale for planning in the 21st century, involving issues of economic development, gentrification, local food and farming, property rights, and civic participation.

Initiative E205
 
01:48
Portland's cherished park system is a safe, clean backyard for its city's residents. Happily, 75% of Portlanders enjoy access to a park or a natural area within a 15 minute walk of their home. The parks provide a variety of amenities, from ball fields and playgrounds, to tennis courts, pathways and picnic areas. Portland's Parks are a community benefit shared by all. . . Or nearly all... In the neighborhoods east of I-205, a different picture emerges. Incorporated into the city in the 1980's, neighborhoods east of I-205 do not have the rich tradition of parks and recreational places we see in other parts of town. Yet, East Portland has experienced extreme population growth. Today, 40% of Portland's families with children live east of I-205. New parks can cost millions , and the city is working toward a bond measure to address these service gaps in a major way. But that could take years. There is a plan afoot that could make a difference right away. It's called "E205." "E205" can make significant, affordable improvements quickly—a picnic table here, a pathway there, a drinking fountain, a place to play... so that Portlanders living east of I-205 can enjoy time outside right away—Beginning this summer!
Creating the Best Regional Park System in the World: Greening our City Square
 
01:04:37
Presented on March 14, 2008 Neal Peirce; David Bragdon "On March 14, Citistates Group chair Neal Peirce and Metro Council president David Bragdon will discuss the importance of strategic regional planning, especially in developing parks and urban green infrastructure. Peirce will discuss how “citistates” – or metropolitan regions – can position themselves to cope with the demanding environmental, economic and social challenges of the 21st century – and especially how they can harness civic forces to promote livability and sustainability. Bragdon will discuss the metropolitan region’s Connecting Green initiative, designed to open new parks, complete the region’s trail network, and restore thousands of acres of natural areas and park land. Bragdon also will describe how local governments, environmental organizations, business leaders and health providers are forming the Connecting Green Alliance to implement the vision of “creating the best regional park system in the world.” A syndicated columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group and founder and contributing editor of the National Journal, Peirce is a leading expert on the political and economic dynamics of metropolitan regions. Now in his second term as Metro Council president, Bragdon previously worked in private sector transportation and international marketing as well as serving as marine marketing manager at the Port of Portland. "
Forest Park at 50-Is it's Future Safe?
 
58:42
Presented on July 31, 1998 Marcy Houle, author/wildlife biologist; Charles Jordan, director, Portland Parks and Recreation; Mike Houck, urban naturalist, Audubon Society of Portland "What a phenomenon. As one of the world's largest city parks, located just five minutes from downtown, Forest Park is a prime example of the natural wonder that makes Portland such a desirable place to live. Even more phenomenal was the foresight, good luck, and sheer determination that made the park a reality fifty years ago. In response to a 1945 City Club report proposing the creation of Forest Park, scores of Oregonians pulled together to make a good idea a great reality. As a result, Forest Park thrives today as a place where wildlife converges and nature finds refuge from the urban jungle. Could the park's visionary founders possibly have planned for the pressures that today's urban growth has placed on it and other greenspaces around our region? While we celebrate the anniversary of the jewel of Portland's park system, it is also time for us to take responsibility for the planning and preservation necessary for Forest Park's continued success. As the Club's 1994 study on Portland's Metropolitan Area Parks states, ""Those in positions of private and public leadership have a duty to promote public parks by example and policy."" This week, we'll look to three such leaders for a celebration of Forest Park's past and for a plan to safeguard its future."

Get in touch with us via http://clawson.homecomfortdealer.com Portland is one of the biggest cities in Oregeon. Parks and greenspace planning date back to John Charles Olmsted's 1903 Report to the Portland Park Board. In 1995, voters in the Portland metropolitan region passed a regional bond measure to acquire valuable natural areas for fish, wildlife, and people. Ten years later, more than 8,100 acres (33 km2) of ecologically valuable natural areas had been purchased and permanently protected from development. Portland is one of only four cities in the U.S. with extinct volcanoes within its boundaries (along with Pilot Butte in Bend, Oregon, Jackson Volcano in Jackson, Mississippi, and Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii). Mount Tabor Park is known for its scenic views and historic reservoirs. Forest Park is the largest wilderness park within city limits in the United States, covering more than 5,000 acres (2,023 ha). Portland is also home to Mill Ends Park, the world's smallest park (a two-foot-diameter circle, the park's area is only about 0.3 m2). Washington Park is just west of downtown, and is home to the Oregon Zoo, the Portland Japanese Garden, and the International Rose Test Garden. Portland is also home to Lan Su Chinese Garden (formerly the Portland Classical Chinese Garden), an authentic representation of a Suzhou-style walled garden. Tom McCall Waterfront Park runs along the west bank of the Willamette for the length of downtown. The 37-acre (15 ha) park was built in 1974 after Harbor Drive was removed and now hosts large events throughout the year. Portland's downtown features two groups of contiguous city blocks dedicated for park space: the North and South Park Blocks. Tryon Creek State Natural Area is one of three Oregon State Parks in Portland and the most popular; its creek has a run of steelhead. The other two State Parks are Willamette Stone State Heritage Site located in the West Hills and the Government Island State Recreation Area located in the Columbia River near Portland International Airport. Portland's city park system has been proclaimed one of the best in America. In its 2013 ParkScore ranking, The Trust for Public Land reported that Portland had the 7th best park system among the 50 most populous U.S. cities. ParkScore ranks city park systems by a formula that analyzes the city's median park size, park acres as percent of city area, the percent of city residents within a half-mile of a park, spending of park services per resident, and the number of playgrounds per 10,000 residents. The survey revealed that 80% of Portlanders live within a half-mile to a park and over 16% of Portland's city area is parkland.

Protecting our Urban Wild Lands
 
54:04
Presented on October 13, 1989 Michael C. Houck, urban naturalist, Audubon Society of Portland "Eighty-six years ago, the Olmsted Brothers, landscape advisors to Portland's Park Board, offered a vision of a park system that integrated natural and developed parks and emphasized the importance of an interconnected park system. Expanding on the Olmsted Plan, Lewis Mumford in 1938 and the Columbia Region Association of Governments in the 1970s advocated a comprehensive, bi-state regional open space scheme. Although some of the Olmsted's recommendations have been realized, we have yet to develop a regional perspective in planning for urban natural resources. Initiatives such as Audubon's proposed Metropolitan Wildlife Refuge System, METRO's Regional Natural Areas Study, and the Tualatin River clean-up offer new opportunities to apply old visions. Our speaker today is one of many who shares the conviction that, given development and population growth in the metropolitan area, this is our last chance to retain a connection with our urban natural resources. Houck will emphasize the need to integrate natural resource planning with regional transportation schemes, urban growth boundary decisions and local zoning patterns. Houck also will discuss his proposal for a Metropolitan Wildlife Refuge System, taking the audience on a tour of existing natural areas that are the framework for the system and exploring future open space needs. The establishment of this system, funded by the Fred Meyer Charitable Trust and other local foundations, has been one catalyst in promoting METRO's Regional Natural Areas Inventory."
London green infrastructure, green grid, landscape plan

London's open space planning has a 2000 year history. In the past 200 years many different names have been used for the work, including: Breathing Zones, Garden Cities , Green Belt, Park System, Green Chain, Green Strategy, Blue Ribbon Network, Green Grid, Green Infrastructure. The term London Landscape Plan could bring these ideas together.
Portland TriMet: Red Line: Kings Hill/SW Salmon - Oak/SW 1st (Complete Eastbound Downtown Route)
 
11:10
The complete journey through Downtown Portland on TriMet's Red Line from Kings Hill, next to Providence Park, to Oak/SW 1st, the point where the line turns and continues further east. Westbound journey: https://youtu.be/BOptxVnIQIY Side note: If you wish to hear the most Portland-sounding conversation in history, skip to 1:20 and watch to 6:00. It was fun listening to these guys, if a bit annoying, but sometimes you've got to listen to the public on public transportation. TriMet and the City of Portland together operate a three-line streetcar system, mostly centered in and around Downtown. Two of the streetcar routes operate in a loop system, with the "A" loop going clockwise and the "B" loop going counterclockwise. The other North-South line runs from the Nob Hill/Alphabet District, east of Downtown, to South Waterfront, where it connects with the Portland Aerial Tram. None of the streetcar lines used to be "loop" routes until September 2015, when at the same time the Orange Line opened, TriMet and the City of Portland finished the Tilikum Crossing bridge, or the "Bridge of the People," used exclusively for transit and pedestrians. This allowed two of the light rail lines to cross the Willamette River twice throughout their route, creating the loop system we know today. Portland's new light rail system is one of the most successful transit projects undertaken by any city in America. The first line, the Blue Line, began construction in 1982 and was finished and opened on September 5, 1986. The original line ran from Cleveland, in Gresham, to Downtown Portland. Over the next 30 years, a series of rapid transit expansion projects and new development ran through the Portland metro area. The Blue Line was extended to Hillsboro, west of Downtown, in 1998. TriMet's second line, the Red Line, opened in 2001 and brought service to Portland International Airport. Soon after this, TriMet, or Tri-Met as it was then known, switched to the current designations of each MAX light rail line by color. The Yellow Line opened in 2004 and ran from Expo Center, near the Columbia River, to Downtown Portland. Originally it was routed on the same "loop" through Downtown as the Red and Blue Lines, but in 2009 it was permanently rerouted on a new north-south route through Downtown, creating the Portland Transit Mall, where each light rail line intersects with each other. Around the same time the Yellow Line was rerouted, the Green Line opened in September 2009, from Clackamas, south of Portland, to Downtown, following the same routing as the Yellow Line through the Portland Transit Mall. Jump forward six years later to 2015, when the fifth light rail line, the Orange Line, opened from Milwaukie, also south of Portland, to Downtown. The Orange and Yellow lines are inter-connected, where most, but not all, Orange line trains continue as Yellow line trains northbound, and Yellow line trains continue as Orange line trains southbound. That brings us to the present day, with Portland's five light rail lines, all operated by TriMet transporting over 100,000 people daily. But Portland wasn't done with just building an extensive light rail system. Early 2009 saw the opening of Portland's first commuter rail line, from Beaverton Transit Center, where it connects with the Red and Blue Lines, to Wilsonville. Called WES, or Westside Express Service, this line is also operated by TriMet and has five stops along its 15-mile journey. What does the future hold for Portland's ever-expanding rail network? There are plans to build Portland's first BRT (bus rapid transit) line, which would run from Downtown Portland to Gresham on a similar route with the Blue Line. This could potentially open by 2021. There have been proposals by TriMet to build a new light rail line from Downtown to Tualatin, southwest of the city. If everything goes to plan, the public could be riding this line by 2025. TriMet has hinted on a few other extensions with no formal planning yet, including the extension of either the Orange Line or the Green Line to Oregon City, further south. Another potential plan could be to extend the Blue Line further west to Forest Grove from Hillsboro. After everything the City of Portland has done in the last 30 years, we know Portland certainly has a bright future for transportation. For a city of its size Portland has achieved much since the planning of its first light rail lines back in the 1970s and 80s.

Be with us at http://oregontrane.homecomfortdealer.com HVAC (stands for Heating, Vventilation and Air Cconditioning) equipment needs a control system to regulate the operation of a heating and/or air conditioning system. Usually a sensing device is used to compare the actual state (e.g. temperature) with a target state. Then the control system draws a conclusion what action has to be taken (e.g. start the blower).

Ten years later, more than 8,100 acres (33 km2) of ecologically valuable natural areas had been purchased and permanently protected from development. Portland is one of only four cities in the U.S. with extinct volcanoes within its boundaries (along with Pilot Butte in Bend, Oregon, Jackson Volcano in Jackson, Mississippi, and Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii). Mount Tabor Park is known for its scenic views and historic reservoirs. Forest Park is the largest wilderness park within city limits in the United States, covering more than 5,000 acres (2,023 ha).

DISNEYLAND GUIDE || How to get the most out of Disneyland
 
04:53
Since Brand and I have been traveling to CA so much for work this year, we decided to get an annual passes to Disneyland. Being pretty well traveled, I can honestly say that Disneyland is my very favorite spot to vacation - and I'm glad to have married someone who feels the same way! Ha! We have turned into quite the Disneyland junkies -- So I thought I'd share some tips that have made our Disneyland vacation smooth and enjoyable. MUST KNOW: 1) I've seen the 'happiest place on earth' become the most 'stressful chaotic place on earth' when you're trying to jam everything in, in one day. You definitely need at least 2 days to fit in both parks. And yes, you need to go to both parks. 2) Purchase your tickets online before your trip, no one wants to stand in that ticket line, while you can be in the park! 3) Download the 'DL Waits' App to your phone. You can see the wait time for each ride in real time. 4) Eat early lunch and early dinner, or eat late lunch and late dinner to avoid the "food rush". 5) If you're planning to watch a parade, grab your lunch to go and eat it on the curb as you save your spot. 6) Get familiar with Disney's "Fastpass" system HERE. 7) Disneyland and CA Adventure are on different Fastpass systems. So is Radiator Springs Racers and California Screamin' in CA Adventure, so utilize that by immediately Fastpassing another ride. 7) There is a Baby Care Center on Main Street, where you can comfortably breastfeed, heat up baby food in a microwave, and change a diaper. Heck, there is even miniature potties in there! 8) Do all of your shopping at the end of your visit. The shops stay open an hour after closing! That way, you don't have to carry around bags all day. 9) Write your cell phone number on your childs wrist, just in case they get lost. I learned this one from my awesome sister! 10) If you're vacationing with a baby or small child, get familiar with the Rider Swap system. It's pretty much the bomb. Rider Swap Secret: If you use a "Rider Swap" pass when using a Fastpass, you don't need a Fastpass for your whole party! So go and fastpass more rides at the same time. For example: If you have a party of 4 adults and 1 baby, get 2 Fastpasses to Splash Mountain, then immediately go Fastpass Indiana Jones with the other two tickets. Everyone gets to enjoy both rides, with the connivence of the Rider Swap! MUST BRING: Stroller/Backpack, Sunscreen, Jacket/Blanket, Camera, Supportive Shoes, Snacks & Mickey Ears! I also keep all my valuables in a small bag that I can take on the rides with me. That way, when I park the stroller I can be stress free about things getting stolen. MUST EAT: -DISNEYLAND- The red corn dog food truck on Mainstreet (I'm not even into corn dogs, and I'm obsessed with these), Cheese Burgers at the Hungry Bear, Churros, Quarter Chicken at French Market (There is an awesome quartet that sings here at night!), Dole Whip (Get in the line INSIDE the gate of the Tikki Room. It goes 10x quicker than the line outside.). -CA ADVENTURE- Broccoli Cheese Soup in a Bread Bowl at Pacific Wharf Cafe, Ghirardelli shakes and hot chocolate (You get free chocolate samples there, too!) Breakfast sandwiches at Starbucks, Chimichangas from the food carts (Yummy meal to easily eat on the go). You also can't go wrong eating anything at The Cozy Cone in Carsland... The Pear of Dice soda and Red's Apple Freeze are a "must drink"! Do you have any Disneyland tips I'm missing here?

Portland's School Based Community Planning
 
09:01
In April 2006, Portlands City Council launched the Schools, Families, Housing initiative. It recognizes that city policies in areas like housing, transportation, and land use planning have critical impacts on the ability of schools to thrive in Portland, and the ability of students to thrive in schools. The initiative is a vehicle to achieve Portlands goal to be a great city for families with children. The Cully-Concordia Community Assessment began as a Schools, Families, Housing pilot project. The assessment explores how to increase and sustain the attractiveness and livability of the Cully-Concordia area for families with school-age children and for the community as a whole. It is intended to result in an action list of locally developed priorities, and the initiation of partnerships to follow through on these priorities. Video produced by John Cárdenas.

Meet the New Park Leaders
 
51:06
A primary element to calculating a community’s “livability score” is the area’s park and recreation options. The National Recreation and Park Association affirms that parks are essential to a community because they provide economic value, health and environmental benefits and are socially important. The next CMC forum on July 22 will feature the new directors of the area’s parks systems, Tim Moloney of the Metro Parks and Tony Collins of the Columbus Recreation and Parks. Jeff Hogan of WBNS 10-TV and the station’s face of their Commit to be Fit campaign, will interview them. Coincidentally, both leaders of the area’s park systems chose to retire about the same time resulting in new leadership at the top of both the Metro Parks and Columbus’ Recreation and Parks Department. After extensive searches for both positions, the new leaders surfaced from other Franklin County communities. Tim Moloney became the executive director of the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks following his role as director of the Parks and Recreation for Upper Arlington. He had experience working in Westerville, and early in his career, in Columbus as an outdoor education coordinator. Moloney said “"It is an honor and privilege to have been selected to lead such a vibrant organization as Metro Parks, the largest metro parks system in the state, and to continue the important work that’s being done to connect people with nature and the outdoors." The Metro Parks are comprised of 17 parks with 200 miles of trails and over 27,000 acres of land in seven Central Ohio counties. It is an independent political subdivision of the State of Ohio with the mission to “conserve natural resources and provide natural area parks for people to enjoy.” The Metro Parks are funded primarily by a Franklin County levy but also receive earned income and donations. Tony Collins was the director of Gahanna’s recreation and parks department for 11 years prior to accepting a similar position with city of Columbus. Prior to Gahanna, Collins was the director of the YMCA in Akron for four years. In his new role, Collins will serve as a board member of the Columbus Zoo, After School All Stars Ohio, and the Audubon Stewardship Board. He is the Chair of the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s Central Ohio Greenways Board. Collins will be leading a much larger department with 500 employees and budget of about $42,000,000. Columbus Recreation and Parks has more than 200 parks on 10,000 acres, 30 community centers, six golf courses, 51 miles of trails and several programs.
