The Parkrose Neighborhood Association was formed in 1985 with the purpose of protecting the general livability of the Parkrose Neighborhood. The area has been in transition from an agricultural to an urban environment since the first subdivision plat was filed in 1911.

Some of the main street commercial that was once served by a street car on Sandy Boulevard remains viable today. Parkrose is home to several destinations including Parkrose Hardware, Grocery Outlet, Senn's Dairy Park, Parkrose High School, and several restaurants along Sandy Boulevard.

Meetings:

Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 7pm.

Was at Rossi Farms, now doing virtual meetings during the COVID-19 crisis. Link will be provided below.

Next meeting is Tuesday, August 18, 2020.

Special meetings called and announced with at least one week's notice.

No meetings in July, November, or December.

Hi everyone,

 
It's that time again for our neighborhood association meeting. Some of you might be new to the idea of a neighborhood association, so I thought it would be a good time for a refresher. (Agenda is below this letter.)
 
First of all, we are not a homeowner's association. It is free to participate and be a member (no dues), and anyone who lives, works, or volunteers within the neighborhood boundaries can be a member. This includes and invites those who rent or lease their homes, those who are employed here, and those who volunteer at neighborhood nonprofit organizations and churches (but who might not live here.) We want the involvement of anyone who has familiarity with and cares about our neighborhood community.
 
We also encourage a variety of ages, races, ethnicities, orientations, and abilities to participate. Neighborhood associations are participatory organizations, and our association is only as strong, creative, and diverse as those who take part in it. We are a grassroots organization, and we don't know everything--you probably have news or information we need to hear.
 
We realize that COVID has made it difficult for those to participate who don't have access to Zoom, and calling in hasn't always worked. We still want to hear from you if you can't attend. Please feel free to email me at parkroseneighbors@gmail.com with ideas, issues, and concerns, and we will do our best to address them.
 
Below my signature is the agenda for this meeting along with the Zoom link and call-in number. Hope we can see you online next week!
 
Sincerely,
 
Annette Stanhope
