Fall letter from the Co-Chairs

By Allan Rudwick and Jimmy Wilson

The Eliot Neighborhood Association board has been working via Zoom for two years due to the pandemic. The existing board has been serving for two years and has been working hard.

We signed on to a lawsuit against the Oregon Department of Transportation over a proposed highway widening in our neighborhood. We have also been working to improve air quality from the large number of diesel trucks that drive through our community. We continue to be a forum for a number of community livability concerns. We have stepped up to host the Dawson Park Concerts, and we could use your help.

The more energetic and engaged citizens that are part of the board, the more we can accomplish. Our meetings are open to the public, and commitment starts at two hours per month. Come check us out.
