Results are in…not just another survey where you don’t hear back. In May 2014, an East Portland Action Plan survey was sent out to all East Portland addresses, as an insert in this newsletter.

That's why it's great that we see so many awards going to outer East Portland programs and activists – people who have made this community better already.” More...
