Neighborhood Mediation versus Compliance

Neighborhood Mediation Services: People are often unaware that something is a problem for others and having BDS Property Compliance staff take action can negatively affect neighbor relations. You may want to consider first addressing your neighbor or another property owner on a personal, neighbor-to-neighbor basis or with the help of a neighborhood mediator from Resolutions Northwest.

Resolutions Northwest (503-595-4890) helps Portland neighbors have productive conversations and work out peaceful solutions to everyday conflicts. The Center includes a dedicated team of volunteer and staff mediators who facilitate direct communication and problem-solving among the parties. Dispute resolution information, mediation training and meeting facilitation services are also provided to the community.

If you are interested in this approach, please contact Resolutions Northwest.
