Connecting Neighbors, Promoting Activities, Civic Involvement
The Ankeny Plaza Association is a catalyst for positive change in our community. Our mission is to energize, mobilize, and galvanize our community to take action. From the greening of the neighborhood, to reducing crime, to connecting residents with each other and the City of Portland, we proactively seek out initiatives that promise to build a sense of community, beautify our surroundings, and instill pride in our wonderful urban neighborhood. Together we’re working to create a safe, welcoming, and respectful community – and we're turning neighbors into friends in the process.
The mission of the Ankeny Plaza Association is to build community by providing a forum for sharing information, connecting neighbors, promoting activities, and fostering civic involvement in our diverse community.
Visions and Values
We are a volunteer association striving to make our neighborhood a better place to conduct business and to live in. We are responsive to our community’s needs through the relationships we build with our neighbors, neighborhood businesses, community organizations and the City of Portland. We operate as a conduit of information for our neighbors. By providing speakers at our meetings, and maintaining a membership e-mail list and web site, we keep our neighbors aware of city operations, community organizations and events and potential developments and changes in the neighborhood. We promote activities within our neighborhood such as the renovation of Ankeny Alley. We offer an opportunity for neighbors and local businesses to bring forth their concerns and problems, providing direction and connecting them to resources for further investigation of their issues.
