Portland Approves $613 Million Bike Plan
"The vote included approval for Portland Mayor Sam Adams' suggestion for a $20 million 'kickstart' that would come from savings on Bureau of Environmental Services programs and expenditures for the city's Big Pipe project that are being phased out as the project wraps up. Adams also said he can find savings in lower bids from contractors during the current slow economic climate.
Beyond that, commissioners acknowledged that funding remains unclear."
Some have suggested generating funding through private sources or selling naming rights to new bike paths.
