The Eliot Livability Committee is proud of some updates we want to share with you.
Neighborhood Litter Pick-up: Thank you, neighborhood volunteers, for a successful Earth Day clean-up on April 20. We removed over 800 pounds of trash from our streets and sidewalks this time, with 35 volunteers showing up to help. Special thanks to Breadwinner Cycles & Cafe for lending their parking lot and keeping us caffeinated!
Trees, trees, trees!! This spring saw over 40 new street trees planted in Eliot as part of a small business grant from the Neighborhood Association, partnering with Friends of Trees and the Eliot Livability Team, as well as support from Toyota to tree-up their own property line on N.E. San Rafael. Trees are truly an investment in the beautification and livability of our neighborhood and we are so glad for the businesses that received new trees on their properties. If you notice young trees suffering from lack of water in the summer heat, please reach out to the Livability Team by email at livability at eliotneighborhood dot org.
Hello Neighbors! Good news: The Oregon environmental non-profit organization SOLVE has chosen Eliot to be part of a new citywide volunteer neighborhood litter clean-up event. If you happen to be free on Thursday morning August 31st, I hope you will join us to help clean up our neighborhood.

At our October 8th litter pick-up event, 15 volunteers showed up and spent two hours cleaning up the Eliot neighborhood. We bagged and loaded about 130 pounds of litter into Jere Fitterman’s car to be hauled to the dump.
Hi Eliot Neighbors! My name is Lauren Mullen and I’m a member of the Eliot Livability Team.
Our neighborhood has linked with SOLVE to sponsor Neighborhood Litter Pick-Up events during the year. The last litter pickup was in October. We would like to build on that spirit of good stewardship by starting an Adopt-a-Block initiative. We want it to be simple and informal. Let me know if you are interested in keeping your block free of litter and the storm drains ﬂowing and I’ll add your name to the list which will be published periodically.
