Historical Context of Racist Planning in Portland:

Racist Planning History
More on City of Portland website.


 Government policies at the time in 1947, such as those of the Federal Housing Administration, supported racist practices, blocking Black Americans and other people of color from the new suburbs and homeownership. The Supreme Court ruled in 1948 that house covenants with racial restrictions were “unenforceable” and unconstitutional, six years before the ruling on racial integration in Brown v. Board of Education.

You answered the call! Thank you!  GoFundMe was a great success...THANKS

After the City Council decided against Riverview Abbey’s Macadam Ridge development, Riverview Abbey appealed the decision to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals (LUBA). In December 2018, our attorney and the city attorney appeared before LUBA to defend the City Council decision. In January 2019, we again learned we had won.


WE won at LUBA  AND the appeal to the Oregon Court of Appeals...

Portland City Council approved (vote 5-0)  SBNA's appeal on  Macadam Ridge decision. Our thanks go out to the Mayor, the City Council and all who care about the livability, sustainability, and safety of SW Portland. Thank you.

How to be Involved in Your Neighborhood

South Burlingame Neighborhood Association is involved in many events. Some neighbors like to organize events like picnics and block parties. Others prefer to work around environmental issues, where neighbors participate in park cleanups and stream restorations, while other neighborhoods are involved in land use issues, carefully monitoring livability concerns. All activities make a difference and there is bound to be something that appeals to everyone, find out how you can get involved. Please contact our Chair.
