Board meetings are meetings in which Board members meet to discuss the agenda for the upcoming General Meeting, conduct informal communications with each other, and ask questions they may have for Board members/Chair before taking action on agenda items at upcoming meetings. The Board typically asks community members observing the Board meetings to hold agenda comments and questions for the general meeting.


Jo Ann Hardesty coming to Lents to discuss Street Response: Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020, 7:00 pm

The Lents Neighborhood Association is proud to announce that Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty will be joining us at our general membership meeting on Tuesday, January 28, starting at 7:00 o’clock in the evening to discuss Street Response, a pilot program launching exclusively in Lents this Spring, that is about responding to low-risk 911 calls involving people who are homeless, such as calls about people who are intoxicated or need someone to check on their health or welfare. Instead of using a police officer, the team will consist of an emergency medical services specialist and a crisis worker.

According to a report, officials considered starting the street response program downtown, but felt it was too big of a geographical area. They said focusing on Lents allows the team to work in a smaller area and address the needs of people who are further away from services.

Along with the Commissioner, we will also be joined by Kaia Sand, executive director of Street Roots, an organization that’s been at the forefront of launching Street Response and Firefighter Tremaine Clayton, the manager of Portland Fire & Rescue’s Community Health Assessment Team (CHAT), who will be directly involved with Street Response in Lents.

Join us to hear directly from the Commissioner, Street Roots, and hopefully Portland Fire about what Street Response is all about and bring your questions for them!

Our other topic of discussion is Prosper Portland’s budget for Lents for fiscal year 2020/2021. We will be joined by Thea Munchel from Prosper Portland who will give a presentation and be prepared to answer your questions.

We will also be discussing an upcoming training for neighborhood association board members and general members that our neighborhood association is sponsoring.

And we will vote on a candidate for the Land Use Chair on the Lents Neighborhood Association board.

Visit our Facebook page to RSVP.
