The eleven neighborhoods that make up NECN’s district are as diverse and multi-faceted as any in the city. They comprise 60,000 residents from all walks of life: some are multi-generational Portlanders, while others are brand new to the city. From the monthly art walks down Alberta street to the quiet campus of Concordia University to the historical areas and great food in Albina, this corner of the inner-Northeast quadrant is one of the most well-known and popular areas of Portland. 

See below for more information about how to get involved in your neighborhood association, or contact NECN at communications[at] to discuss volunteer and civic engagement opportunities. 

Neighborhood Associations

There are 95 neighborhood associations in the City of Portland; the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods is home to 11 inner North/Northeast Portland neighborhoods.

Neighborhood associations are volunteer-run organizations that consider and act on a broad range of issues affecting life in their neighborhoods. All neighborhood residents are encouraged to participate in their neighborhood associations by attending meetings, bringing up issues and concerns for discussion, planning events and projects, and volunteering.

In Portland, neighborhood associations are formally recognized by the City’s Office of Neighborhood Involvement (ONI), and governed by ONI’s Standards for Neighborhood Associations.
