The Bureau of Development Services partnered with other city bureaus to provide a City of Portland resource outreach table at the fun and festive “Good In the Hood” annual event. The mission of the event is “to promote the cultural aspects of the North/Northeast Community”.
This event serves as a great venue to partners with local food vendors which includes many cultures, a KidSpace arts and crafts area for youth to enjoy, ethnic Marketplace to buy various clothing and an Information Village to hand out various information on the available programs and services the city has to offer.
“This is a great opportunity to provide the community with helpful information and enjoy lots of great music, many people and many friends,” says BDS Outreach Program Coordinator Tiffani Penson. The partnership between all of the bureaus led by Outreach Coordinator Desiree Rajee-Williams from the Bureau of Planning & Sustainability has proven to be a great way to collectively reach out to communities. We look forward to seeing “Your Sustainable City” at upcoming events around the city.
