Collins View's current SW News article

Nick Falbo, PBOT Senior Transportation Planner, will speak at our February 6 meeting. He will explain upcoming transportation projects proposed for Collins View, including a project to deal with the problematic Primrose-at-Terwilliger crossing and bus-stop-in-the ditch that have been big safety issues for years. Trimet Bus Stop 5801 is in the photo!

Also in SW News, a story about how people worked together to create the painted fish on the fence at Capitol Hill School as a fundraiser.

The February article also has an update on the McLarty mural. Read the whole article [HERE]. These stories will appear in the February 2019 SW News tabloid.

Last month's SW News article

Did you know that the Collins View School (now Riverdale High) once had an interesting mural by a well known Portland artist? The mural was relocated to Capitol Hill School in ~2001. Read the story [HERE]. The story appeared in the Jan 2019 SW News (tabloid).

Nextdoor is a private 'social network' for Collins View and nearby 'Hoods

Thousands of folks across many neighborhoods are set up on Nextdoor. 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. Our 'signal' often gets lost in the 'noise'.

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