South Burlingame Neighborhood Association


Be a Part of Shaping the South Burlingame Neighborhood


South Burlingame is a small neighborhood but we are mighty.

We have dynamic, interested and selfless neighbors who are passionate, engaged, community-driven and show up when called upon to do so. We believe in good and bad times we can depend on one another; now more than ever. We are hoping that you feel the same and will consider joining the South Burlingame Neighborhood Association Board.

We will be holding elections soon and there are several positions that are worth considering with varying levels of responsibility and time commitment so you can engage where you have to time and expertise to give. 

We are looking to have a committee representative for each of the following SWNI committees that meets once a month with the other 16 SW neighborhood representatives (time commitment is generally an hour once a month):

  • Safety Committee
  • Land Use Committee
  • Schools Committee
  • Equity Committee

Currently the board has 7 At Large Board Members and 4 Board Officers that include the roles of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. We have a couple of members that will be leaving the board at the end of their terms and would love to have you join us. The board meets the 2nd Thursday of each month for an hour. 

To share your interest, please DM  or reach out to  with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!

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.

The boundaries are SW Barbur Boulevard, Miles Street, Brier Place, S½ Canby Street and its imaginary extension east to SW Taylors Ferry Road on the north and east; and on the south by SW Taylors Ferry Road and Spring Garden Road.  Interstate 5 bisects a narrow portion of its northerly boundaries. 

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.
