Having lived all over the US and the world, Portland is the first city that I’ve found that I want to stay in, and I really enjoy walking through the quirky and beautiful garden that is this neighborhood. Whatever our problems, we’re not the first city or neighborhood to encounter them. There are success stories out there, and my hope is that we can learn from them and apply them to our situation.
