ALNA meeting October 15th, 7pm, Elections for the new year

 Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association meeting set for October 15th, 7pm via zoom

We'll post the link by October 10th, right here.


*. vote on Budget for 2020-2021

*. Elections, positions are open for Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and At Large positions.  All are volunteer, all require the ability to meet monthly, now online, for about 90 minutes.  Current Board members are happy to talk about positions, contact us at arborlodgeneighborhood.com

What would you add to this Agenda?

We hope you'll join us to support the many good things happening in our neighborhood.  Did you know an ADA portable toilet will be installed soon at the Park - when the brick and mortar restroom is locked for the winter - paid for by ALNA?  Did you know that this year we have so many volunteers for the Fresh Fruit for School Backpack Program that we have people waiting until January to donate ? We have such generous neighbors.  Did you know we have a Purple Air Monitor active?  Our Clean Air Committee set that up.  Did you know we continue to ask the City what the plan is for the lot at Denver and Rosa Parks Way - the deadline to renew the permit there is long overdue.  And there is more going on.

Bring your ideas.

See you October 15th at 7pm via Zoom!


Information on Saturday, September 26th, in our area

 The Governor just announced she is declaring an Emergency situation in North Portland for this Saturday, September 26th.

She has put the State Police Superintendent and the Multnomah County Sheriff in charge of a joint operation in north Portland.  Along with Portland Police, they intend to spread police officers out in the neighborhoods, especially between Delta Park and Peninsula Park.

All three police agencies stated during the press conference their intent is to keep the Proud Boys meeting in Delta Park and the Black Lives Matter folks meeting in Peninsula Park apart.

The Governor has authorized the use of CS gas by all three police agencies if they deem it necessary to stop any altercation.

I am sharing this information with you so you are not surprised by increased police presence.  You may also want to keep your windows closed to avoid any exposure to CS gas.  Although Mayor Wheeler has dis-allowed PPB to use CS gas, the Governor is overruling him for this one time only.

You can google the Governor's Press Conference today to learn more details.  


Many Thanks for your attendance/participation

 Thank you to all who participated in the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood Association meeting last night.  I know it was a somewhat dry, business meeting, so thanks for hanging in there and for your input.

The meetings usually focus on Committee activities and other happenings in the neighborhood, so I thought I would share this document with you about what the NA tries to do annually in Arbor Lodge.

I hope you'll return for the October meeting when we will do introductions, elections, approve the budget, and be sure to get in Committee reports earlier.  Thanks again for showing up, and sharing your best ideas.

Meeting minutes will be posted subsquent to their approval at the September 17th neighborhood association meeting. Some in attendance voiced opposition to signing the petition, while others voted yes but with reservations regarding some aspects of the petition.
