Collins View | Southwest | Portland | Oregon | u.s.a.
The Collins View Neighborhood Association meets at 7:00 PM on the first Wednesday of most every month — We take July off, and we have a picnic in August!
We meet in Riverdale High School (where Boones Ferry and Terwilliger overlap), in the Maverick Room, down the hall going left out of the foyer.
In lieu of a National Night Out picnic this year, we are having an Ice Cream Social on Sunday August 5, 3:00-6:00 PM at St. Mark Church parking lot, (the Neighborhood apres-emergency neighborhood meeting place).
Our next Association meeting will be September 5th.
Our June meeting featured Mark Wells, Crime Prevention Office.
Blurb: Join the CVNA 'team' as we learn crime prevention strategies for keeping yourself, your family and neighbors safe. Presenter Mark Wells, City of Portland, Crime Prevention Program Coordinator, will discuss setting up Neighborhood Watch and Crime prevention strategies specific to our neighborhood. Presentation will include effective 911 call strategies, zero leading addresses and how they impact 911 call centers. Strategies are designed to reduce and minimize the impact of Neighborhood crime in the areas of personal safety, cyber safety, and theft.
June 6, 2018, 7pm at Riverdale High School Maverick Room.

April meeting was: Zero leading address changes and 911 Wayfinding
Blurb: Presenter Andrew Aebi, City of Portland Local Improvement District Administrator, will share with us the purpose, execution dates and benefits of the upcoming address changes scheduled for some homes in our neighborhoods. Andrew has the answers to your questions. These changes will correct long-standing address inaccuracies and remove the computer-incompatible ambiguities that send first responders to the wrong address. This is important! Attend and find out more.
March meeting was: Earthquake Preparedness How to Get Ready.
Blurb: Presenter Rick Eilers, founder of Prepared Northwest, is passionate about helping friends, family, and neighbors prepare themselves for natural and man-made emergencies.
This was a great presentation! Very sobering to think about what things will be like after The Big One.
