Livability and Safety Committee



This committee meets once a month to address and manage issues which directly impact the livability of the Pearl District neighborhood.

The committee developed and administers the neighborhood trash can, pet station, Graffiti Busters programs, Polish the Pearl clean up events, recycling/sustainability, good neighbor agreements, social events such as “Movies in the Parks” and other issues affecting the neighborhood’s livability.

The Livability and Safety Committee partners with several contiguous neighborhoods on important issues we may have in common, such as the Joint Subcommittee on Sidewalk Management, crime prevention, and a proposed information kiosks project.

We strongly encourage our neighbors to attend meetings and join our friendly group. There are a lot of issues affecting livability in the Pearl, and we always welcome new, motivated members!

Come and walk with your neighbors The Pearl District Foot Patrol is sponsored by the Pearl District Neighborhood Association as well as The City of Portland Crime Prevention. The Foot Patrol currently has three different walks on three different days and times. The FP walks the streets of the Pearl to deter crime as well as reporting on suspicious behavior, graffiti and people who may need help. We work with the Police Dept., Park Rangers and Crime Prevention staff. Our groups help keep the Pearl District Safe. Come out and try a walk, If you feel as though it’s a good fit you’ll then need to do the proper training. Training is given regularly at The Ecotrust by Mark Wells, Crime Prevention Coordinator. Drop us an email to learn how to join – it’s easy, fun and makes you feel good.
