Concordia Neighborhood Association The Concordia Neighborhood is bounded by NE Columbia Boulevard on the north, NE Prescott on the south, NE 42nd Avenue on the east and NE 22nd Avenue on the west.

Vernon Neighborhood Association Vernon is a small neighborhood of peaceful streets lined with cute, well-kept bungalows and cottages. The neighborhood’s proximity to both the Alberta Arts District and the shops and restaurants along NE Fremont Street, combined with its housing prices, make Vernon a popular place for first time homebuyers. Alberta Park is within walking distance, as is Vernon Elementary. Vernon also boasts a diverse population, a solid community with plenty of amenities.

King Neighborhood Association We’re here to provide access to local government and to provide support to residents and businesses in the King Neighborhood. The King Neighborood is located in inner Northeast Portland, Oregon, 97211. It is home to a diverse group of residents and businesses.

Sabin Neighborhood Association Sabin is centrally located within the city in inner Northeast Portland. Convenient to shopping, cultural activities, jobs, and a variety of housing, Sabin is a wonderful place to live, work, play, and shop. The Sabin neighborhood is located roughly between NE Wygant and NE Siskiyou, NE 23rd and NE 10th Avenues in Portland, Oregon. The neighborhood is ideally located close to downtown, the Lloyd District and job centers near the Columbia and Willamette Rivers.

Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods: As a core part of the Portland Community Engagement System, NECN serves as one of seven district coalitions advancing neighborhood livability through highly inclusive civic engagement. Our organization is set up as an independent 501(c)3 nonprofit for more opportunities to respond to community needs. We believe in creating healthy communities by engaging citizens to become directly involved in determining how their neighborhood evolves. We invite all North and Northeast residents to become an active part of their neighborhoods at the association or coalition level!
