Community Resources

Great gathering spaces are an important part of any thriving community. A bar or restaurant can be a valuable community hangout and help to strengthen a sense of identity and connection within a neighborhood.

As Portland continues to grow and thrive, many features of big city life have become part of our everyday experiences. It’s not hard to see that we love our brewers, growers, distillers and our neighborhood bars and restaurants. It’s important that liquor license holders, neighbors, and City agencies work together to maintain the vibrancy of our neighborhoods.
