October 6, 2020 – Community Safety & Livability Meeting Notes

A quick recap on this past Community Safety & Livability: We discussed the Community First Strategy to Address Houselessness in Portland, Oregon DRAFT, and shared it with members of the neighborhood who attended the meeting to get their thoughts and feedback on it. We started the process of brainstorming on how we might take actionable steps to help houseless neighbors in our community immediately and voted unanimously to do so.

We like the Community First Strategy as a high-level, inclusive guideline to work from, as it attempts to address many perspectives. Of particular interest is the Action Plan, the section that begins “There must be programs for short, medium and long term solutions.”

We are reaching out to adjoining Neighborhood Associations to get their thoughts and examine plans already in action to address the emergency of houselessness as winter approaches, and we’re seeking strategic alliances with other organizations who can help.

If you’d like to look it over, it can be found on the Current Topics Section at https://sunnysideportland.org.

The Houseless emergency will likely encompass most of the discussion at the next meeting which has been moved to the 10th of November to provide everyone undivided attention to vote in the Tuesday, November 3rd election.

Here is a link to the Community First Statement: https://sunnysideportland.org/comfirst-draft/

Please join us at the next Community Safety & Livability Meeting Tuesday after Election Night, discussions have remained collaborative and solution focused with all perspectives shared and  respected.
