Legacy Impacts Local Food Banks

Posted on by Eliot Neighborhood

Legacy Food Drive Boxes
More than 250,000 people in the Portland metropolitan area and Southwest Washington – a third of them children – don’t know where their next meal is coming from. Everyone is at risk of falling on hard times and needing the support of a food bank.

Elemental Fitness Lab

Elemental Fitness Lab

Settling into their new location in Eliot, Elemental Fitness Lab (EFL) is unlike any other gym in Portland focusing on high quality fitness and nutritional systems.  Their goal is to have their clients leave the gym feeling better when they arrived and able to take on the week or an active weekend with confidence and safely and efficiently reach their fitness goals.

Clean Up Recap

Clean up

2016 Eliot Clean up

Eliot is looking much cleaner after our annual Spring Clean-Up on May 22 sponsored by Metro and the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.  About 50 families brought their unwanted items and junk to the clean-up site at Legacy Emanuel parking lot on Williams and Graham.  We collected 4 dumpsters full of junk, 1333 pounds of electronics to be recycled, many boxes of books, hundreds of articles of clothing, reusable household items and a pick up truck full of scrap metal.  Donations from the event totaled close to $800 which will be used to help  sponsor events like the free Dawson Park Concerts, the Jambalaya festival, the Soul Stroll and other neighborhood events.  This is the Eliot Neighborhood Association’s main fund raiser for the year so it was good to see so many residents in attendance.

Letter from the LUTC Chair

Bikeway Marking

Rodney Bikeway Marking

There wasn’t too much Land Use news this month, but on the transportation side of things there were a number of things happening.  First and foremost, the gas tax increase of 10 cents/gallon increased, which will provide money for repaving and reconfiguring some streets.  This is seen as an opportunity to get changes on NE 7th avenue including removing the unsafe roundabouts which have caused many crashes over the years.  There is a group of folks focused on making NE 7th a better place to be and a safer place to walk and bike.

Understand Portland Harbor Cleanup

NECN will host presentations in both English and Spanish to help you understand the proposed cleanup plan for the Portland Harbor and how you can have a voice in the process.  Refreshments will be provided.  Presentations will be hosted at NECN office at 4815 NE 7th Avenue.
