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.
