The Sumner Association of Neighbors (SAN) holds meeting nearly every month of the year. We had a special crime meeting in August with a lot of neighbors in attendance. We can use what we learned from each other to tailor a neighborhood watch program for Sumner.

Stop by and learn other news, and happenings. Grab a treat and a cuppa, have a chat, or just sit back and relax. The meetings are guided by our Chairperson Yvonne and board members will present information about land use, parks, crime and more.

PLUS: “One-Minute Concerns”, updates from our neighborhood police officers, coffee, treats and awesome free raffle prizes!


This is a special meeting in response to the recent uptick in crime in our neighborhood. This is the only focus of this meeting, no other business will be discussed.

Recent news items in our Sumner neighborhood in NE Portland.

Nov 24: Tri-Met driver re-unites tot with mom

Good news that could have turned out very differently. Thanks to Mr Silverman! Per KATU:

A sharp-eyed TriMet driver said it was second nature to stop and help after he spotted a small child in the road Tuesday morning. Richard Silverman, a 15-year veteran, said he was turning the corner near Northeast 82nd and Killingsworth Street when he saw something in the road and realized a small child was in the street. It was raining at the time.

The Oregonian also reported on the tot and the TriMet driver.

Dec 8: Another nasty wreck, this time at NE 82nd and Killingsworth

Per the Oregonian:

Around 6 a.m, Portland firefighters were dispatched. They used hydraulic spreaders, rams and cutters to extricate two of the drivers, who were taken in ambulances to local hospitals with life-threatening injuries.

Dec 11: Report of shots fired, NE 82nd and Prescott

Per the Oregonian:

Police were called to the 4500 block of Northeast 82nd Avenue at 6:15 p.m. Sunday on a report of gunshots being fired. Once on the scene, officers determined one shot was fired into an occupied residence, but no one was injured. Witnesses were unable to provide adequate suspect information, police said.

Dec 17: Spill and fire at the glass plant

Our friends at the Owens-Illinois glass factory decided to give The Grotto some competition. (Just kidding.) The report sounds kind of scary, but no one got hurt. Pretty cool photos though.

Per KGW:

Fire crews were called to help contain a spill at a Portland plant, where a kettle holding more than 200 tons of molten glass had split at the bottom.
