After officially becoming a certified EcoDistrict this summer—a culmination of three years of visioning, planning, and convening hundreds of neighborhood stakeholders to craft a collective vision for Lloyd—we’re excited to bring on a new Executive Director to guide our organization in implementing our new 2030 Roadmap.

About Lloyd EcoDistrict

Lloyd EcoDistrict is a small nonprofit with a big vision: to ensure the Lloyd neighborhood is one of the most sustainable neighborhoods in North America, and a leader in equity, resilience, and climate protection at the local level. Our mission is to engage the community, form partnerships, and develop programs that create a connected, prosperous, and resilient Lloyd.

Our programs range from placemaking (planting pollinator corridors; hosting park clean-ups; painting intersection murals), to resiliency (hosting emergency preparedness workshops; supporting houseless neighbors), to resource conservation and efficiency (supporting lighting retrofits and building performance benchmarking). The common thread: creating a more connected, prosperous, and resilient neighborhood for residents, employees, and visitors alike.

In 2022, we became a nationally certified EcoDistrict- the first in Oregon and the seventh in the world. This certification was the result of three years of visioning, planning, and convening hundreds of neighborhood stakeholders to develop a comprehensive 2030 Roadmap of our collective vision for urban and community development in the neighborhood.
