At its January 14th, 2021 meeting the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association voted to endorse our own District 42 State Representative Rob Nosse’s call to City and County leaders to use emergency funding and powers to immediately site additional sanctioned camping areas throughout SE Portland and the city as a whole. Working directly with SEUL Executive Director Leroy Eadie, the following draft letter has been distributed to all of the Neighborhood Associations in the hope of SE Uplift voting to formally endorse it as soon as protocols allow.
SNA is partnering with SOLVE to do a cleanup along Hawthorne Blvd on Saturday, March 13; 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
We will be splitting in smaller groups and going up and down Hawthorne (and inside the neighborhood for a block or so). For those that participated in our January event along Belmont, this will be a similar event.
Since this is a SOLVE event, more information is available and registration is required via SOLVE’s website at https://www.solveoregon.org/
Come join us on February 18th at 6:30pm to hear about the Shelter 2 Housing Continuum project. Our guest speaker, Oriana Magnera, is a member of the Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission and the Energy, Climate, and Transportation Program Manager for Verde.
See you there!
