St. Johns Neighborhood Association
Welcome to the SJNA site, which is for everyone who lives in St. Johns neighborhood of Portland.
Our General Meetings are on the second Monday of each month, and feature guest speakers who represent activities and organizations of interest to St. Johnsians. The SJNA Board meets on the last Wednesday of each month, and anyone may observe the board meetings.
For the moment, we are holding hybrid meetings, on Zoom, and in person at James John School. Check the calendar and our mailings for any changes.
You can find the meeting schedule on the Calendar below, as well as other events, including meetings of the Neighborhood Emergency Team (NETs).
SJNA is an all-volunteer organization that exists to enhance the livability of St. Johns by considering and acting on issues that affect the quality of our neighborhood; by providing an open process by which all members may involve themselves in the affairs of the neighborhood; by taking and promoting positions on matters of civic interest; by informing residents of events or plans affecting the neighborhood; and by staying in communication with other organizations that may affect the life of the people of St. Johns.
We strive to be transparent, inclusive and democratic, and so all are welcome.
Please feel free to browse around the site. We also recommend that you click below to be added to our mailing list; we send out a monthly newsletter full of information.

As you move through the website, other things of interest that we hope you will visit are:
St. Johns Culture Survey - click on the link at the top of this page. The survey is fun to take, and doesn't take long.
The Land Use Tracker. Want to find out who has permits to tear things down and build them up? Here is the place to go.
Minutes. We've been doing this for a while now, and most of the minutes are available if you want to know about the recent history of St. Johns.
Block Parties. In 2023, we helped folks in St. Johns hold 30 block parties. In 2024, we have some new ideas to make the program even better. Stay tuned!
