Southwest Neighborhoods has worked with over 500 volunteers during the last year to support citizen involvement and community-building activities. Together we secured funding for playgrounds, small grant projects, a mural, and advocated for transportation improvements including traffic calming measures, sidewalks, and bike lanes in our neighborhoods. Take a minute to review our Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2011-12. Take note of the significant amount of funds leveraged by the City’s investment through our grant agreement with the Office of Neighborhood Involvement and the number of activities and accomplishments measured in our performance indicator reports.
Southwest Neighborhoods is also proud of our partnership with the Bureau of Environmental Services to provide education, outreach and community involvement for watershed projects in the Fanno, Tryon, and Willamette watersheds. Our grant with BES enables us to staff the Watershed Resource Center. See Jen Seamans’, Watershed Resource Center Manager, Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2010-11 now available on the WRC website.
