Do you like living in the Pearl? Have you asked how you could help to make it one of Portland’s most livable neighborhoods? We have a place for you!
Many Pearl residents are volunteering as “Graffiti Busters”. Each person is trained in graffiti removal and assigned a block to observe. We are in need of more eyes on the street. If you would like to assist in this endeavor please attend the next Livability Committee meeting on Monday, January 6th. Come to talk to folks who have been active in graffiti removal and see if this is something you would like to do.
The Livability and Safety Committee concerns itself with livability issues after buildings are up and running. Trash, noise, and graffiti are among our concerns. Looking into the future we would like to sponsor a National Night Out in August 2014, A Neighborhood Watch team, and Friends of Tanner Springs Park. Each of these activities takes leadership and “do bees”. If you are interested in giving back to the community in one of these areas please come to a Livability and Safety Committee the first Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at Cupcake Jones meeting room. And/or contact Joan Pendergast, Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A largely forgotten part of Portland’s past became an urban icon of living unlike anything the country had ever seen: A unique blend of verve and vibrancy, with more than a passing nod to Portland’s uncommon brand of originality.
The Pearl District has earned a worldwide reputation for urban renaissance. Diverse, architecturally significant, residential communities thrive here. Galleries rub shoulders with restaurants, shops open to parks, and no one has to squint anymore to see the magic that’s taken hold.
The Pearl is the story of a vision come to life. That story has a beginning, and middle, but to those who have been a part of the transformation – there is no ending. Future plans will assure this “pearl” of a place becomes even more: more sustainable, more livable, more inviting, and more groundbreaking.
