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 our meetings and the South Burlingame Neighborhood Association Board.
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):
Land Use Committee
We just had elections and have new members on the board. Come and welcome them! In June we will be electing 4 Board Officers: the President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. We 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 email@example.com or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to meeting you!

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.

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.
