Northeast Neighbors (NeN) is the City-chartered neighborhood for the area that includes all lands within the urban growth boundary north of Randy Pape Beltline between the Willamette River and North Game Farm Road. Northeast Neighbors was created in 2011 when the Cal Young Neighborhood Association was subdivided into three neighborhoods. (See map of NeN area.)
We are committed to helping our neighbors increase their sense of community, to creating events that offer opportunities to meet one another, and to helping inform neighbors of issues that affect them.

Mayor Vinis then addressed questions such as: Harassment and lack of safety downtown - She responded that the City Council is planning a work session on downtown safety and problems with "travelers".
Bringing art back to Eugene - She agreed on need or more galleries and the important role of art.
We feel we are ignored out here on City fringe - Mayor Vinis is traveling to all the neighborhoods to better understand their feelings and needs.

First Striker Field Project Complete- Thank you, Volunteers!
You might think that a rainy Saturday morning two weeks before Christmas would not be a good time to seek community volunteers to plant trees. But you’d be wrong! A dozen enthusiastic workers showed up early Saturday, December 10 to kick-off development of Striker Field with our first tree planting and blackberry removal. Volunteers from Crescent Park, Crescent Village, Lord Byron Place, The Tennyson, Hawthorne Estates, Crescent Meadows, and Bascom Village cheerfully tackled the task and are eager for the next opportunity. Eugene Parks Volunteer Coordinator Vanessa Young provided shovels, loppers, wheelbarrows, and mulch to get the job done. It is amazing what can happen when we all pull together with a common goal. Thanks to all of those that gave of their time to benefit us all. If you’d like to join us for the next project, keep an eye out for announcements in the 2017 e-news and neighborhood newsletter.
One of seven trees. It's small now, but soon will shelter picnics and bird song. Volunteers left to right (Vanessa Young, James Carr, Elizabeth Carr, Teresa Bishow, Kathi Jaworski, Sandy Farmer, Jess Burlingham, John Jaworski, Kathy Donde, Yarid Donde, kneeling- Brent Desgrosellier.
