Last week the Oregon supreme court affirmed a land use order that allows TriMet to build the light rail line from Vancouver through southeast Portland to an adjoining suburb. The opinion itself is fascinating reading, at least to land use nerds. It contains one typo that suggests that the suburb in question is the Rodney Dangerfield of the Metro area.
Here's how the court describes the project:
The South North MAX Light Rail Project involves the construction of a light rail line from Clackamas Town Center in Happy Valley, Oregon, to Vancouver, Washington, via the cities of Milwaukee and downtown Portland.
It's a typo that others sometimes make, and suggests that either the court has a hazy notion of the geography of the Portland area, or that TriMet's expansion plans are even grander than we can imagine.
