Events

This event will be held via Zoom | RSVP Here

Civic Life is set to overhaul the district coalition office (DCO) model by consolidating from seven to four service areas that are aligned with the newly-adopted Independent District Commission voting districts map. Each district coalition office serves residents and community groups within their district. The restructuring aims to equalize representation and service across Portland by ensuring each office supports roughly equal population sizes with shared interests.

Neighborhood associations will continue to receive support and representation in city matters. By aligning district coalition service areas with the new voting districts, Portlanders can work with their district coalition office to engage with city councilors. Neighborhoods which span two or more voting districts may elect to work with Civic Life to determine how they receive support. No changes to Civic Life’s work plan are in effect yet. The model will be effective July 1, 2024, and your input is necessary to ensure a smooth transition that serves the diverse needs of all Portlanders. Info sessions are being held by Civic Life throughout the city. RSVP to attend the Civic Life Info Session by clicking above!

This is an in-person event at SE Uplift: 3534 SE Main St. | RSVP Here
