Neighborhood Associations

The Portland League is a long time supporter of the city’s system of neighborhood associations. In 2004, a study committee engaged in an extensive update that culminated in a new position statement.

The Portland League is a long time supporter of the city’s system of neighborhood associations, first studying the program in the 1970’s.  From 2004-2006, a League study committee engaged in an extensive update that culminated in a new position statement adopted in January 2007.  Since then, the League has worked to support adequate funding for the Office of Neighborhood Involvement and its programs.  In particular, the League supports efforts to increase the number and diversity of people involved in their communities and to encourage city decision makers to give more weight to citizen input.
