How to Publish Your Event on the Arleta Triangle Square Website

The crowd-sourced online events calendar is your free ticket to reserving time at the Arleta Triangle Square. We also encourage bringing chalk to the square and writing your event on the chalkboard located behind the stage.

Step 1: Get Acquainted With the Event Calendar. Navigate to the Arleta Triangle Square website’s events page. Familiarize yourself with the calendar and the events already scheduled. This will help you to choose a date for your own event that does not conflict with other activities.

Step 2: Select a Suitable Date. Choose a date that suits both you and your group. Make sure to consider the schedule of your target audience as well.

Step 3: Start the Hosting Process. From the main menu on the events page, select the “Host Your Event at the Square” option. This will initiate the process of adding your own event to the calendar.

Step 4: Fill Out the Event Details. A form will appear where you provide details about your event. Fill in the event’s date, start and end times, and a brief description of what it will entail. If you have an image that represents your event, feel free to include it. If the event details are available on another site (like Facebook), provide a link to it. Note that the event date is in YYYY-MM-DD format with the year first, month second, and day last. For example an event on October 1, 2023 would be entered as 2023-10-01. Lastly, if you’re raising funds for charity and suggesting donations, add the expected amount in the ‘cost’ field. If not, leave it blank.

Step 5: Publish Your Event. Once you’ve filled in all the necessary information, hit the ‘publish’ button. Your event will instantly be added to the Arleta Triangle Square events calendar.

Confirm Your Event’s Publication. Go back to the events page to ensure your event has been successfully published. It should now appear on the calendar on the date you selected.

Please Note: It’s possible for events to be scheduled at the same time. Depending on the nature of your event and its use of the site, this may or may not be an issue. Please consult with event organizers if you would like your activities to coincide with another scheduled event.

Consumption and distribution of alcohol is prohibited at all events.

This platform is crowd-sourced, which means anyone can add their events. So, don’t hesitate to publicize your gatherings, charity events, celebrations, or neighborhood meetups! We hope this guide makes coordinating and scheduling your events straightforward and simple.

There is still time to provide feedback on the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s Building a Better 82nd Project in coordination with Metro Government and TriMet. The project includes near-term critical fixes and a plan for improvements to 82nd Avenue. High-frequency transit on the network’s busiest transit line along 82nd Ave is proposed in the same style as the Division FX bus service. The project includes immediate safety measures for all road users and signal improvements. Additional investments include shade expansion via tress, better access for people using the corridor. See anything missing? Share your ideas for the project now!

Provide Your Thoughts on the Lower SE Area by June 23rd

Do you work, play, live, or worship in the Mt. Scott-Arleta, Brentwood-Darlington, Lents, or Woodstock area? If so, your feedback is needed on the Lower SE Rising Area Plan. A Discussion Draft was recently released and is seeking feedback to determine if neighbor comments and ideas to improve transit service, pedestrian crossings, bike networks, and transportation service are enough. Have ideas on land use or transportation projects to improve the area? Provide your feedback before June 23rd!

The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability (BPS) and Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) have released the Discussion Draft of the Lower Southeast Rising Area Plan. This draft plan proposes zoning changes that will help expand opportunities for neighborhood businesses and housing choices, along with transportation improvements, to make it easier for residents and others to meet daily needs nearby and help address housing affordability.

In this “online open house” event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear more about these draft proposals from project staff, ask questions, and give us your input to help refine the plan. You are also invited to engage with this project through a self-guided online open house and share your feedback through a survey or the events listed below.

The Park Lights Are Saved at Mt. Scott Park

Thanks to your support and advocacy, the park lights at Mt. Scott Park will be retained until funds are available to replace them. You may have notice multi-lingual warning signs attached to the light poles reminding folk to never attach anything to light poles. Did you know that each light pole weighs nearly 1200 pounds? That is a lot of weight you do not want to be on the receiving end of!

Thanks to Commissioner Dan Ryan and the Portland Parks & Recreation, lighting will remain at the park and 18 out of the 22 light poles will be replaced as supplies become available. This is an increase from the original proposal and the replacement light poles will retain the classic design with the attached metal framing that we are accustomed to. Current estimates are sometime near  December, 2023 when the Mt. Scott Community Center is scheduled for closure during the seismic retrofit and partial remodel.

When: June 10th, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
