Welcome to the Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association in Portland, Oregon. We are working on efforts to publish information to this site about all of our current initiatives in a more timely manner.

2019 Nominations to the Board of Directors
Dear Eastmoreland Neighbors,
As announced in the most recent ENA Newsletter, the election of new Board members will take place during the May 16th, 2019 Annual Membership Meeting in accordance with the ENA Bylaws dated 1 May 2007.
Seven Board of Director positions may be elected so that the Board will have a full complement of twenty-one members.
ENA President, Rod Merrick, has appointed a Nominating Committee of three members: Matthew Timberlake, Katherine Lamb, and David Dowell. The Nominating Committee nominates candidates to the Board of Directors.
They will prepare a written ballot for the known candidates with space available for write-in candidates, should anyone choose to be nominated from the floor. A candidate may be nominated by written petition of any three (3) members by submitting their nomination by printing and submitting the paper form, or by completing the online form.
The deadline for receiving nominations by the Nominating Committee is May 1st. Paper forms must be submitted to the address indicated on the form. The Bylaws also provide an option for write-in candidates submitted at the Annual Meeting if the nomination is supported by a petition signed by three members.
On May 9th, the ENA will post on-line, via email, the ENA website, and the ENA Facebook page all of the known nominations and biographical statements received by May 1st.
Thank you for your interest,
The Nominating Committee
100 Trees for 100 Years: Planting the first 100 to Thrive
Planting 100 trees is the first step in a street tree succession plan– a campaign to unite the neighborhood and foster community norms and inspire individual actions that will sustain an optimal street tree canopy through time—preserving valuable existing trees, filling empty planting spaces, and replacing dead, dying, or dangerous trees. Overall, the plan is based on best practices as defined by professional municipal arborists. It also includes education and outreach to neighbors, and the selection and purchase of choice nursery stock. The aim is not only to plant trees, but also to create strategies that ensure that property owners, whatever their personal preferences, now and in the future, act in the interests of the community’s canopy—making sure not only these first 100 trees but also successive hundreds thrive for their life-spans—100 years and more.
Please view the 100 Trees for 100 Years Project Post for more details.
Residential Infill Project (RIP)
On March 12, 2019, the Portland Planning & Sustainability Commission voted 5 to 4 to approve the RIP and send it to City Council for a vote this summer (see “Controversial Portland Infill Plan Narrowly Advances” – Oregonian/Oregonlive 03-12-2019). The City Council will hold work sessions and receive public testimony at some point before that vote.

E-mail list replacement
The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association is setting up email distribution in a new account management system. Making this change gives us the opportunity to streamline our communications as well as address membership concerns about privacy and the integrity of our membership records.
What does this mean for you?
“Yes, I would like to receive email updates from the ENA!” Great! You will need to opt-in via a two-step verification process using the link below.
“I’m ALREADY on your email list.”
Thanks for subscribing! However, you will STILL need to opt-in using the link below, or you will be dropped from our list on December 31, 2017.
“No, thank you, I am not interested.” No problem! If you would prefer to NOT receive email communications from the ENA, you do not need to do anything. Our current mailing list will be phased out by December 31, 2017.
The Eastmoreland Neighborhood Association respects your privacy. We will not share your personal information with any third party. Any personal information you share with us will only be used for official ENA business.
Click on Crime Statistics above or go to: https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/71978. First, you want to choose the neighborhood association. You can either select it in the scroll down box above the map or you can click on it on the map. Then you can select the dates/months you want to see and then you can print them out. These statistics only go back as far as May of 2015 when they began loading the information into the new program. That gives you a two year window, so it’ll show a little depth of view. At that time, they reclassified some crimes, too, so even though it’s not a long view, the comparisons will be apples to apples from May 2015 forward.
Preparing for the big one is a matter of life and death. The ENA Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC) has prepared an emergency earthquake resource guide, “When Disaster Strikes Eastmoreland.” After downloading, print it and store with your emergency items. Click here for the guide. Click here for some quick tips, “A Little Prep Now, Big Pay-off Later,” also prepared by the EPC.
