Portland Now, Inc.
Portland Now is the neighborhood association for the Portland neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky. We perform the duties charged to a Neighborhood Association but with a new outlook. Portland Now was formed in October 2001 after the group known as the Portland Neighborhood Association disbanded. We are an umbrella group, which means several other groups are part of us.
Our Vision, Our Goals
The vision of Portland Now is that of a improved Portland Community where residents and non-residents who have a strong interest in Portland's future can work together to see the visualized improvements become facts.
We have people of all political parties, churches, and areas of Portland. We have working partnerships with several other agencies & organizations. We consist of people from just about every walk of life.
Our main goal is to pull the community together so that everyone has a voice.
To create a community that is welcoming & open to possibilities.
To protect our heritage & treasures.
To create a safe & economically stable environment for future generations.
To promote education & offer tools that will help build responsible adults & youth.
How You Can Help?
We can see these goals become reality, but it will take a while unless you join in to help. What are your goals for this community? What do you want to see happen? Send us an EMAIL with your suggestions, dreams and goals or come to a Portland Now monthly meeting. We really want to know what is on your mind.
Portland Now wants the community to be involved in a proactive way. We want all who wish to help make the changes necessary to improve the community to be involved.
All Portland residents are general members and are eligible for nomination to the Board of Directors. So, attend a meeting, vote on issues and let us know what is on your mind.
We meet the first Tuesday of each month. We have pizza at 6:00 pm with the regular meeting beginning at 6:30 pm.
