East Portland Neighborhood Office

Comprised of 13 neighborhoods East of I-205 out to the Gresham border, from the Columbia River to Mt Scott, we are home to many diverse communities, unique neighborhoods, and a quarter of Portland's population!

There are many ways to be involved with your community - from neighborhood associations to community groups to committees that advocate for changes in how your city works!

We welcome you to look around and see how you can be involved!


This website is supported by the East Portland Neighborhood Office and 

the East Portland Action Plan.
