Report Illegal Fireworks

What can you do when you hear/see illegal fireworks?  REPORT IT by calling 503-823-BOOM (503-823-2666)!  

Brentwood-Darlington has a serious issue when it comes to illegal fireworks.  Last year two houses in our community were destroyed by fire due to illegal fireworks.  A few days ago, neighbors found this chunk of metal from a mortar (pictured below) smoldering in their yard. Luckily, no one was injured and no fires were started, this time.

Setting off fireworks before and after the 4th causes undue suffering and stress for children, animals, and veterans in our neighborhood.  Please report illegal fireworks and keep your own festivities safe and confined to the 4th of July. Looking for something fun to do?  Bring the family to the Brentwood-Darlington 4th of July Parade!

Sponsor a Backpack for a Brentwood-Darlington Student


Brentwood-Darlington is home to five schools, including Woodmere Elementary School.  Woodmere is a diverse Title I school located in the northeast corner of the neighborhood and serves families from Brentwood-Darlington, Lents, and Mt Scott-Arleta.  In past years, Woodmere has worked with Schoolhouse Supplies and a corporate sponsor to provide a backpack full of supplies to every child attending.  This program relieves a significant burden on families and helps every student start the year on the right foot.  Unfortunately, Woodmere’s longterm sponsor is no longer participating for the 2019-20 school year.  This leaves over 300 students without the supplies they need to be successful.  But you can help!

Sponsor a backpack (or more!)  A donation of $20 sponsors a full Tools for Schools backpack for a student at Woodmere Elementary.  All donations are tax deductible through Schoolhouse Supplies*!  Want to contribute more?  Check out the different levels below:

  • $1,000 – Backpacks and supplies for 50 students in need
  • $2,000 – Backpacks and supplies for 100 students in need
  • $4,000  SCHOOL CO-SPONSOR – Backpacks and supplies for 200 students in need + in-school backpack event for 10 volunteers
  • $6,000  HONOR ROLL CO-SPONSOR – Backpacks and supplies for 300 students in need + in-school backpack event for 10 volunteers
  • $8,000  SALUTATORIAN CO-SPONSOR – Backpacks and supplies for 400 students in need + in-school backpack event for 15 volunteers
  • $10,000  VALIDICTORIAN SCHOOL SPONSOR – Backpacks and supplies for 500 students in need + exclusive in-school backpack event for up to 20 volunteers

To donate online CLICK HERE.  Be sure to put “Woodmere School” in the Additional Comments box so your funds are directed correctly.  If you are interested in making a larger contribution, volunteering, or learning more about Schoolhouse Supplies, contact Executive Director Alice Forbes.

Volunteer to pack supplies!  If you are unable to contribute financially, you can show up in August to help pack supplies into backpacks!  Look for more information on that as the date nears.

Have a business?  Your employees have the opportunity to volunteer at your sponsored school and engage with students and teachers while packing supplies into backpacks. This meaningful volunteer experience will occur just before or during the first week of school (August 2019).  This direct engagement provides a deep connection for your staff: 100% of surveyed participants reported that they are proud of their company for sponsoring this program.

Public Comment Period for Apartment Building Proposed on Woodstock

Public Comment Period for Apartment Building Proposed on Woodstock NOW OPEN! RAISE YOUR VOICE!

Developers plan to build a four-story apartment building that fills The Joinery block in Woodstock. It will have 195 units, 116 parking spaces, a central courtyard, and commercial space on Woodstock Blvd.

The proposed building contrasts sharply with the moderate height and volume of Woodstock’s other commercial buildings.  It will add hundreds of cars to the existing congestion.  The building will be built, but massive public outcry can influence its form and impact.

Please take a moment to call for humane construction and design in Woodstock.  You may register your views during a public comment period that ends on July 5th at 5:00PM.  Send comments to city staffer Andrew Gulizia at Andrew.Gulizia@portlandoregon.gov.  Include Case File Number LU 19-163863 AD.

To be most effective, your comments should be based on:

(1)  Specific city policies, which can be found under “Policies to Guide New Development” at https://keepwoodstockwonderful.wordpress.com; or

(2)  Approval criteria listed in the city’s notice, which can be found under “Actions Needed Now!” at https://keepwoodstockwonderful.wordpress.com.

What happens in Woodstock will shape the future in Woodstock and adjoining neighborhoods.  Please weigh in!  Our collective future depends on our raised voices.  To follow this project closely, visit Keep Woodstock Wonderful.
