Land Use and Transportation Committee

The MNA Land Use and Transportation Committee grapples with design, livability, and land use issues in our neighborhood. We meet most months, the fourth Wednesday of the month, to discuss long-range planning issues or hyper-local land use cases, and recommend responses to the board. We also look for ways to improve our community through public art and placemaking activities. Current Chair is Amanda Rhoads, amanda@montavillapdx.org. Check out the committee page.

Public Safety Committee

The Public Safety Committee is a space where people can come learn about how to set up neighborhood watches on their street; hear more on safety-related concerns; and brainstorm new responses for old problems. Current Chair is John Rotter, john.rotter@montavillapdx.org.
