Neighborhoods

Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. (SWNI) is a coalition office for 17 neighborhood associations in southwest Portland. SWNI receives grant funding from the City of Portland's Office of Neighborhood Involvement to help provide support and technical assistance to the volunteer-based neighborhood associations. Each independent neighborhood association selects representatives to serve on SWNI's board and committees.

Neighborhood Newsletters

SWNI provides each neighborhood association with the use of Constant Contact, allowing a secure self-subscribing and unsubscribing option to neighbors wanting to receive their neighborhood association's e-newsletter. Each neighborhood uses their list of contacts to send out event announcements, meeting reminders and other neighborhood news. When you sign up using the link below, select your neighborhood and any other list you want to be included on. If you want to be removed from a list, you can unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each newsletter.
