Arnold Creek Neighborhood Association is updating Bylaws

Bylaws templates are available from the Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI). Neighborhood coalition leaders and ONI staff have created new bylaws templates for neighborhood associations. The templates are intended as guides to help neighborhood associations that are reviewing and updating their bylaws. The revised templates respond to many questions and issues that have come up in recent years. More at http://www.portlandoregon.gov/oni/30148
 
Sign up for Neighborhood Bylaws Training on January 31, 9am - noon at the Multnomah arts Center: http://swni.org/LeadershipTraining
 

 

Trails Policy for SW Portland

The city is asking for feedback on their draft Trails Policy for SW Portland. You can view it on the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) website: http://www.portlandoregon.gov/transportation/trails. Send comments/feedback to trails@portlandoregon.gov.
 
The city is hoping to use this process for any community group that wishes to improve a public right-of-way throughout the city.
 
Read about the SW Coronado right-of-way trail in Arnold Creek at http://swni.org/arnold_creek/Coronado. SW Trails has submitted a request to the city for permission to build an improved trail that would be safer than the current primitive path through the woods on this disputed land. The recent passing of legislation reduces adjacent landowner liability if a nonprofit group like SW Trails constructs and maintains a trail in the public right-of-way.
 

 

United Neighbors for Reform: Demolition/Development Resolution

In response to the increasing trend in demolitions of single-family homes, a coalition of 40 Portland neighborhood associations presented a resolution and a video to Portland City Council in December. The hearing is scheduled to continue in January. Read the Portland Tribune article. UNR has requested ACNA to join other neighborhood associations around Portland in supporting the resolution.
