"City" piece on Portland's urban sprawl problem and a group of citizens who are serving on a task force that is trying to find ways the city can protect neighborhoods along arterials like Washington and Stevens Avenues and outer Congress Street.

The task force, which is chaired by city councilor Jim Cloutier, is expected to hold public hearings on its recommendations as early as March, and the city council could vote on the measures in April.
