April meeting was: Zero leading address changes and 911 Wayfinding

Blurb: Presenter Andrew Aebi, City of Portland Local Improvement District Administrator, will share with us the purpose, execution dates and benefits of the upcoming address changes scheduled for some homes in our neighborhoods. Andrew has the answers to your questions. These changes will correct long-standing address inaccuracies and remove the computer-incompatible ambiguities that send first responders to the wrong address. This is important! Attend and find out more.

March meeting was: Earthquake Preparedness How to Get Ready.

Blurb: Presenter Rick Eilers, founder of Prepared Northwest, is passionate about helping friends, family, and neighbors prepare themselves for natural and man-made emergencies. Having a plan and preparing in advance can turn an unbearable situation into a comfortable inconvenience. Being prepared is being responsible. This will affect you! This is important!

This was a great presentation! Very sobering to think about what things will be like after The Big One.

Nextdoor is a private 'social network' for Collins View and beyond

Thousands of folks across many neighborhoods are set up on Next Door. You can set up your login by validating your street address — then you can view and participate. There is a lot of non-association chatter on NextDoor, so it is difficult to use for official business. The message gets lost in the 'noise'.

See our Sign-Up instructions. Thereafter, use Collins View on Next Door.
