That’s what you would have seen if you had taken a recent official tour of Portland’s light-rail line given by TriMet for the Milwaukie city council.
TriMet wants to build a light-rail line to Milwaukie, a Portland suburb, but the council is aware that residents strongly oppose it. They have voted against light rail the last couple of times it was on the ballot and they once voted to recall their mayor and most of their city council when those officials were promoting rail and transit-oriented development.
Now the crime issue has come up, giving opponents a new argument for killing the project. So TriMet offered to take the city council on this tour to show how wonderful it would be to have light rail in their community.
