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 August 2017, we partnered with City Repair Project, local muralist team Rather Severe and arts nonprofit Color Outside the Lines to complete the first intersection mural in the Lloyd neighborhood! This project was supported by City Repair as part of their Village Building Convergence. Volunteers from Wells Fargo and Color Outside the Lines joined community members to complete the colorful vortex, which is adjacent to Calaroga Terrace, a senior living facility. Over the past year, we sought input on project locations and design ideas. The mural is located NE 2nd Avenue and NE Clackamas Street. Going forward, we hope to have a number of these projects throughout the neighborhood, building on the assets and talents of the people that live, work and play in the Lloyd EcoDistrict.
