WNA Meets Wednesday, December 5th

Woodstock Neighborhood Association’s monthly general meeting is this coming Wednesday, December 5th, at 7:00 pm, at the Woodstock Community Center, 5905 SE 43rd Avenue. WNA’s Sustainability Committee meets at the same location at 6:00pm. Both meetings are open to the public.

Remember, if you live in Woodstock neighborhood, you are automatically a member of WNA, and we welcome your input and involvement.

Wednesday’s WNA meeting agenda includes the following reports:

  • Police/crime prevention
  • Woodstock Library
  • Friends of the Woodstock Community Center
  • Reed College
  • Newsletter
  • Woodstock Community Business Association
  • Mural Committee
  • Media Committee
  • Sustainability Committee

We will at least begin two important discussions—how to influence commercial development in our neighborhood and how to raise more funds for WNA activities. If you have ideas about these topics but can’t attend Wednesday’s meeting, please send us an email at info [at] woodstockpdx.org.

In addition, attendees will receive updates on the December 8th Friends of Trees neighborhood plantings (click here for tree planting calendar & info), and on the No Coal Exports efforts.

Friends of Trees Woodstock Planting! – Saturday, December 8th –

Friend’s of Trees Woodstock Planting is coming up on Saturday, December 8th! 
FREE TREES!
It’s going to be a historic year for Woodstock because we are getting free street trees this season only. Friends of Trees has almost 190 trees ordered for the planting already with another 10 days to go until our Nov. 19th order deadline. They feel confident we’ll reach 250 trees! Want a FREE street tree? Please contact Friends of Trees at (503) 282-8846 or email at FOT@FriendsofTrees.org if you want a FREE street tree! 
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS! AND TRUCKS! 
We’ve got only about 8 trucks confirmed through homeowners, a few more from Friends of Trees, and hopefully a few more coming with our Crew Leaders and Assistant Crew Leaders come planting day. We really need more trucks and drivers! If you can help, please contact Friends of Trees at (503) 282-8846 or email at FOT@FriendsofTrees.org.
We could also use a large truck or several smaller ones to shovel mulch out of if anyone could help with that. 

“Out of the Mud” meeting #2 scheduled for October 22

This is a confirmation for neighbors with an interest in learning more about alternative options being proposed by the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) for improving unimproved streets. At WNA’s October 3rd meeting, we had a presentation on this topic by Christine Leon, PE, Development & Street Systems Management Division. Due to lack of time for a thorough discussion of neighbor’s questions and concerns, Land Use Chair Terry Griffiths arranged for a second meeting to be held Monday, October 22 at 7:00 PM at the Woodstock Community Center (5905 SE 43rd Ave). Rich Newlands,  PBOT Project Management Division, will be present at this meeting to provide information and answer questions.

Find us at Sept. 23rd Woodstock Farmers Market!

Woodstock Neighborhood Association is the featured organization at this Sunday’s (Sept. 23) Community Booth at the Woodstock Farmers Market. We plan to have a good variety of information and promo materials on hand and look forward to connecting with a lot of neighbors. Come on by our table to pick up a yard sign, bumper sticker or magnet, or just to say hello! This will also be our first in-person promotion of WNA’s Sustainability Committee, a.k.a. Sustainable Woodstock, and we will be asking folks to weigh in on sustainability project ideas. Hope to see you there!
