The Lloyd District has so many assets – a mix of residential communities, large and small businesses, schools, churches, and neighborhood groups. Livable Lloyd facilitates collaboration across the district, encouraging individuals to bring forth their ideas for creating a livable, sustainable neighborhood. Supported by the Lloyd EcoDistrict, Lloyd District Community Association, and Go Lloyd, Livable Lloyd is a space for neighbors to get to know each other, share resources, and work together to improve and strengthen our community.
We are always looking for new ways to take on sustainability challenges in our neighborhood. One of Lloyd EcoDistrict’s goals is to support the projects neighbors want to initiate and invite participation to projects we are already involved in! One of our current projects is a Pollinator Pathway, located along NE Multnomah Street between 7th and 8th Ave. This project focuses on bringing green spaces into our built urban environment and providing important habitat for native pollinators such as mason bees and monarch butterflies. Planting began in April 2016. Stay tuned as we plan our next steps for extending the pathway and decorating the planters!
In 2017, we are looking forward to working with City Repair Project as part of their Village Building Convergence. We hope to create a mandala in an intersection in the district. Be sure to attend our meetings to learn all the updates about this community project, as well as to vote on location and design!
Livable Lloyd Meetings are held monthly on the third Monday of every month 6pm-7pm. If you have a community space in the district that you would like to host a meeting at please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
