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.

Where We Are Located

The South Burlingame Neighborhood of Portland Oregon is located approximately 4 miles south of downtown Portland.  It has an area of approximately 0.42 square miles and borders the Multnomah Hillsdale and South Portland Neighborhoods on the north; Riverview Abbey on the southeast;  the Collins View, Marshall Park and Marquam Neighborhoods plus an Unclaimed Area where Riverview Cemetery is located on the south.  Its geographic coordinates are 45.466 degrees North and 122.688 degrees West.

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.
