Do you have a great idea for an event in your neighborhood? Or maybe you want to create a safe space for youth to spend time after school? Neighborhood associations are one way that neighbors can organize and address important issues within their neighborhood and they also play a role in creating a sense of community and belonging. Most neighborhood associations hold public monthly events and meetings to hear from their community members and discuss the issues important to their communities.
Want to get involved the decisions happening in your neighborhood? Find out which neighborhood you live in by searching your address in the Portland Neighborhood Boundaries map. Once you locate your neighborhood, you can search your neighborhood website to find out information about neighborhood association meetings, current construction projects, city parks, and more.
Civic Life’s My Neighborhood Program was established as a direct channel for community members and neighborhood associations to engage in City decision-making, determine neighborhood needs, and represent neighborhood interests in land-use and development decisions. We understand that involving our diverse community members in how the City governs is an essential part of building a Portland that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming for all.
