Thank you to all the neighbors that attended our Sumner General Meeting held on Sep 15 2020 via Zoom. Your conversation and input is so valuable and it gives us all a time to connect and hear what’s going on in Sumner.
Our next General Meeting is Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Our scheduled guest speakers will be Hannah Lewis, Sumner Board Member, to talk about scammers and how to avoid becoming a victim AND Donavan McCutcheon, with US Ecology at 89th Ave between Killingsworth St & Emerson St (formerly NRC). As many of you know there have been long on-going issues with this waste company. We now have an individual that wants to mend those issues and update us what they are doing to improve their site.
Thank you also to our guest speaker, Jonathan Lewis with the City of Portland, Homelessness & Urban Camping Impact Reduction Program (HUCIRP) and for encouraging us to report campsites. Central City Concern picks up over 250,000 pounds of garbage a month. Below are the links that Jonny talked about at our meeting.

Has the City considered placing dumpsters near encampments?
When will the City restart campsite removals?
Has the City considered alternative shelter models?
