The Piedmont Neighborhood Association is not going to hold its regularly scheduled monthly board meeting this Wednesday. The board chose to cancel this months meeting so members of the board can attend the North Portland Transprotation Partnership Kickoff. This event, to be held this Wednesday, September 19th from 6-8pm at Kaiser Town Hall (3704 N Interstate Ave), is the launch of an exciting initiative to join neighbors from all of North Portland together to discuss transportation issues in the region. All neighbors in Piedmont are encouraged to attend.
Bring your families, meet your community officers and see some of our specialized units. We will be re-dedicating the North Community Policing Center’s Peace Pole; giving limited precinct tours; displaying EDU, SERT, K9 & Motors equipment and serving hot dogs & ice cream for all. Hope to see you there!
North Precinct is on the corner of Killingsworth and Emerson, on the 6 bus line – it also has a parking lot behind it off Emerson for those who carpool
