Neighbors and community to collaborate on creative safety solutions Sept. 30

Neighbors Together Meet & Greet with your City of Portland North Community Safety Coordinators and other area organizers on September 30th, 2019 from 6-7:30 pm, at Central Northeast Neighbors, 4415 NE 87th.

What is Neighbors Together?

Neighbors Together goes beyond the traditional “watch” model and empowers neighbors and community to collaborate on creative safety solutions.

Our training supports neighbors to work with each other, with the City, and with community to better address a broad range of related public safety considerations such as active transportation, emergency preparedness, personal safety, community advocacy, and more.

You may have heard about some changes to City-supported Neighborhood Watch and the Community Safety Program (formerly the City’s Crime Prevention Program). The Meet & Greet is an opportunity to learn more about Neighbors Together and what has changed from Neighborhood Watch. There will be an opportunity to connect with your Community Safety Coordinators on future training’s of interest. We will provide light refreshments.

Please RSVP at north.pdxteam@portlandoregon.gov or call at 503-823-4064.

This month we talk about the air that we all breathe and how to protect our health and livability in Sumner.

Join us this Tuesday, May 21 for our Community Meeting when we talk about everything Sumner!

Hear of all that is happening in our neighborhood. We will hear an update on the Livability Committee, crime and safety.

There have been discussions and concerns about the current and future air quality in Sumner as affected by adjacent industrial businesses.

Our guest speaker will be Greg Bourget, Executive Director and Lead Researcher at Portland Clean Air. Portland Clean Air is a registered Oregon Political Committee working to address industrial pollution in Multnomah and Washington Counties. Their mission is to improve our air quality by educating and activating people directly affected by toxic air emissions.

There is also concern about the upcoming Conditional Use Permit hearing for NRC at NE 89th and NE Emerson. Board members and neighbors in attendance at this community meeting will address your questions. The business is asking the city for permission to operate a waste related business in our neighborhood which is currently against code.

Bring your questions, or just relax and listen. The meeting starts at 7:00 p.m., with social time at 6:30 p.m. We keep things moving along and plan to wrap up by 8:00 p.m. or so.

So stop by! Sumner is better with all of us!

Community Meetings meet the third Tuesday of every other month January, March, May, July, September, and November. Monthly trash pickup is during summer months, and our Annual Cleanup is in September.
