Safety Committee

As Portland has increased its population, additional safety concerns have emerged including homelessness, theft, and illegal camping in public spaces. Located just outside of Downtown, the South Waterfront with its increased access, is beginning to see more urban issues experienced in the Central City. To remain vigilant, this committee will be proactive on programs and projects that aim to create a safe neighborhood for all people. Ideas include education/outreach, annual safety audits of the neighborhood, and working with other committees to ensure safety in their respective committee missions.
