PORTLAND — The public is invited to take part in the future of transportation in Bayside at a 6 p.m. workshop Thursday at the Merrill Auditorium rehearsal space, 20 Myrtle St.

The second workshop in the study conducted by the city and the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System will be led by Carol Morris, who will present the first draft of a plan for the neighborhood.

City spokeswoman Jessica Grondin said the first workshop, held last month, generated 150 suggestions on street configurations, parking, bicycling and pedestrian connectivity in the neighborhood bounded by Washington Avenue, Forest Avenue, I-295 and Cumberland Avenue.

Those who cannot make the workshop are invited to stop by Avesta Housing, 307 Cumberland Ave., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday for an open house, where more input on the master plan will be gathered.

Comments on the master plan can be made and reviewed online at
