Portland, OR (PRWEB) May 6, 2006
PortlandNeighborhood.com officially announces the launch of its Web site, a resource for those interested in Portland, Oregon. Site visitors can learn all about Portland through neighborhood profiles, a Portland Blog, and additional Web site features.
PortlandNeighborhood.com was designed to share the strong sense of community in Portland. “We wanted to deliver the look and feel of Portland’s unique neighborhoods,” says Lorri Ely, site developer and Portland local, “Portland is a very special town with many neighborhoods, and local pride runs deep. We wanted to create a community resource for local Portland residents, and for those who want to move here.”
The Web site has only been in existence for several months, but is already garnering positive feedback from locals and new Portland residents who view the site as a helpful resource.
"Fully informed about all of Portland's neighborhoods." – Tim C.
"I love this site! Wonderful idea, and well-executed." - Shannon D.
"Thanks so much for the Portland Neighborhood blog. It's been a terrific resource for us as we prepare to move to Portland next month.” -Brett C.
The neighborhood profile pages offer descriptions and photos of each neighborhood, links to real estate resources, maps, parks, schools, a community calendar, and featured neighborhood businesses and restaurants. The Portland Blog shares information about popular events throughout Portland’s many neighborhoods. Additional Web site features include a local Portland arts guide, information on local transportation, Portland sports and fitness, and additional resources about living in Portland.
Input from the Portland community is important in developing new Web site features and additional content. New website features are being tested for adoption, such as the Eliot neighborhood’s Community Discussion Forum, where neighbors can discuss local issues and concerns, as well as view their local community newspaper on-line. If successful, these services will be expanded to additional Portland neighborhoods on the Web site.
