PDNA Safe Rest Village Meeting #1
Static Preview

(March 10, 2022) An example of a neighborhood association calling together to discuss the location of a Safe Rest Village in the Downtown neighborhood. Safe Rest Villages provide shelter and case management with wraparound behavioral and mental health services. Presently the sidewalks of Downtown and Old Town have grown crowded with people "living" in tents. SRVs are seen as a more humane alternative. 

PDNA-sponsored Q&A session focused on the proposed Safe Rest Village Naito Parkway site.

Panel included Portland City Commissioner Dan Ryan and Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran. Questions were submitted by neighborhood residents in advance of this session.
