Good Neighbor Agreements

Good Neighbor Agreements (GNA) are unofficial documents that outline a set of guidelines between a business and another party - neighbors, neighborhood association, business association or other business. GNAs are not legal City of Portland documents and are not enforceable by City of Portland staff. 

As a community member or a business, a GNA is a tool for having a conversation about concerns and expectations, then coming to agreement on whatever issues arise. This is a neighborly approach to problem-solving, but is not a binding legal document.
