NECN invites community members to join in lively discussions exploring public safety and livability issues in inner-north and northeast Portland, to weigh in on topical issues, and to assist with the development of educational forums on safety and livability. In the past, SALT:
Developed and hosted Sharing the Road, a transportation safety forum for people who walk, bike and drive. Drew a large audience and lead to increased participation in participating neighborhood associations.
Hosted several representatives from youth and gang outreach programs to learn more about how to reduce youth and gang violence in the area. From these discussions, we created a “Top-5 Actions for Reducing Violence” resource list for distributing between neighbors.
Monitored Last Thursday’s impacts on the four neighborhoods along Alberta, gathering information from neighborhood associations and additional community members through conversations and a survey.
Weighed in on the Portland Plan on behalf of the coalition area in regards to safety, livability and equity issues.
