› About the ¡Vámonos! project
Metro's new bilingual mapping project helps people in Cornelius, Forest Grove and Hillsboro learn about great places to walk and bike in their communities.
Información en español.
With help from a Kaiser Permanente grant, Metro and community partners are working to increase awareness of great places for families to bike and walk in Cornelius, Forest Grove and Hillsboro.
The project, called "Vámonos! Let's explore Cornelius, Forest Grove and Hillsboro by foot and by bike," will result in maps co-developed in Spanish and English. The maps will help families safely get around their communities without cars.
About the maps
The maps will be available for free to the public starting July 2012. Metro will distribute 60,000 printed materials and reach more than 130,000 people with this project. The maps will highlight points of interest, history, commerce and transit stops as well as highlight parks, trails and natural areas.
