The new entryway to Lents Town Center and streetscape improvements are substantially complete. This event is to dedicate the newly improved areas, designed with community input and funded by PDC in partnership with Portland Bureau of Transportation.

The project is located in one of PDC’s priority areas. The improvements now provide a more positive pedestrian experience, create a visual entryway to the Lents Town Center, and promote continued investment in the Lents area. Attendees are encouraged to tour the newly improved area and use a free $1 token at the nearby Lents International Farmers Market which runs from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm at SE 92nd Avenue and Foster Road.
