The Pearl Party is the PDNA's major fundraising event, and funds are returned directly to the community in the form of neighborhood improvement projects. Come out to the Pearl Party, and have a great time with your neighbors and coworkers.
Concerned citizens are organizing to ensure ongoing safety, health, and livability in the Pearl. There will be a general safety meeting, led by the Office of Neighborhood Involvement, for all residents of the Pearl District in January.
There will be two ways to participate: a neighborhood watch or a foot patrol. Training is provided for each option stressing best practices and how to stay safe.
The Neighborhood Watch Program brings people together, creating a shared vision of community safety. Neighborhood watch meetings typically occur annually and offer information about safely responding to an issue that concerns them and which agencies to contact.
A Foot Patrol is a group of volunteers who walk their neighborhood streets and parks to deter crime and report problems. According to the availability of participants, patrols might be scheduled once a week, every two weeks or monthly for a 45 minute to an hour walk.
Please join us to ensure a safe and beautiful 2015 in the Pearl.

Brooms, grabbers and trash bags in hand, more than 100 participants turned out to clean up the streets of the Pearl District in the semi-annual Polish the Pearl event on October 17th. Wearing an array of orange and yellow vests, the spirited volunteers, led by street captains, marched through the streets of the neighborhood picking up trash.
The group gathered early in the morning at Peet’s Coffee to pick up equipment, receive instructions and mingle with their friends and neighbors. Finishing up several hours later, volunteers assembled at the Fields Park to enjoy donated refreshments and to vie for the raffle prize of a donated bicycle.
