Nick joined Ed Garren, Homeowners Association President Pamela Ferguson, along with community members and firefighters from the Hayden Island Fire Station, at the Hayden Island Manufactured Home Community National Night Out event Tuesday evening.
Hayden Island is the focus of the Hayden Island Plan, a collaborative effort by the City of Portland and Island residents to improve accessibility, livability, and sustainability on the Island over the next 35 years. The Plan will create a more walkable residential community and develop new business areas around the proposed light rail station while continuing to protect and support the marine and terrestrial habitats that make Hayden Island such a unique community.
National Night Out, now in its 26th year, brings neighbors together to strengthen community-police relationships and heighten crime and drug prevention awareness. Last year nearly 40 million people participated in National Night Out events.
