Seemingly small decisions related to roads, sidewalks, housing, employment, goods and services, and transportation in a neighborhood can greatly impact the livability and health of a community, who has access to it, and who can thrive there. While livability may mean slightly different things to different people, many folks have shared values and hopes for the places they call home.
Southeast Uplift’s Neighborhood Planning program helps neighbors, groups, and organizations understand and navigate complex systems to understand what is going on now, why, and help them achieve their hopes for the future. We work to inform community of pending policy and planning efforts and how to weigh in. And we can connect neighbors, community groups, and government agencies to one another to address concerns and opportunities related to our transportation system and land use patterns.
Whether it is advocating for a new crosswalk, examining ways to improve an unimproved street, addressing our housing crisis, or starting a community garden, Southeast Uplift help you and your organization get started.
For support with land use, transportation, or development issues contact the SE Uplift Neighborhood Planning Program Manager, Leah Fisher, at (503) 232-0010 x313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
