The Pearl District Neighborhood Association is comprised of volunteers that either live, work or own property in the Pearl District, and they all care deeply about where the neighborhood is going. As committee members, they monitor issues large and small that affect the Pearl District community. Some watch over livability issues, others stay on top of development projects, a few keep a watchful eye on eyesores and proposed building designs, and others keep in constant touch with the City of Portland. The PDNA meets the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 pm at Pacific Northwest College of Art. Board Meetings are open to the public.
