When Ardenwald residents heard Portland-Milwaukie light rail was coming to town, some saw an opportunity. Their opinions differed on the merits of the MAX, but maybe they could get something out of it for the community.
From that community brainstorming, they came up with a plan: TriMet would pitch in some money, and if residents could raise $300,000, they could restore Johnson Creek around the Tacoma Street light rail station and install an interpretive boardwalk.
