- The City of Portland is responsible for maintaining green street planters.
- Seasonal maintenance includes removing sediment, leaves or trash that can impede water flow, replacing plants, and watering.
- Maintenance staff leaves door hangers for people who live near green streets with a description of the work performed and contact information.
- The city welcomes help from green street neighbors to help keep water flowing in and out of the planters, to remove debris and to water during very dry weather.
- Please visit the Green Street Stewards page at www.portlandoregon.gov/bes/GreenStreetStewards for more information.
- Please dispose of any trash or animal waste you remove from a green street planter in the garbage.
