The Safety and Livability Team (SALT) is one of four community committees at The Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN). We invite neighbors to weigh in on public safety and livability issues facing inner-North and Northeast Portland, and to assist with the development of public forums on safety and livability topics.

Over the past few years, SALT has:
Hosted representatives from youth and gang outreach programs to learn how to reduce youth and gang violence. From these discussions, we created a

Held a transportation safety forum, Sharing the Road, for people who walk, bike and drive. Drew a large audience and lead to increased participation in neighborhood associations.
Hosted community discussions, in addition to those hosted by Portland Public Schools, regarding changes to school boundaries.
Monitored Last Thursday’s impacts on the four neighborhoods along NE Alberta Street.
Weighed in on the Portland Plan on behalf of the coalition area in regards to safety, livability and equity issues.
Hosted a public safety roundtable discussion with neighborhood leaders to discuss what health and safety issues were of most interest to N/NE neighborhoods. Click here to view notes from that meeting.
