Our Vision

A Livable, Functional, Prosperous 82nd Avenue of Roses 

 The 82nd Avenue of Roses will become a livable, functional and prosperous street. Nearby residents and businesses will be proud to be associated with 82nd, and the corridor will be known as one of Portland’s Great Streets.


The 82nd Avenue Improvement Coalition is made up of neighbors, neighborhood associations, businesses and institutional groups formed to act as a catalyst between the communities we represent and governing agencies and stakeholders that can influence the future of 82nd Avenue. Through broad organizational support and a unified voice, the 82nd Avenue Improvement Coalition will engage these parties to identify and address the vast, diverse needs of our communities and local economies along 82nd Avenue.
