Southwest Association of Neighbors (SWAN)


The Southwest Association of Neighborhoods (SWAN) borders Minto-Brown Island Park and the Willamette River. SWAN members engage residence in issues related to land use, parks, schools, and other concerns specific to the area. The area boasts great walking and community events. It is home to Illahe Hills Country Club and the historic Pioneer Cemetery.

If you live, work, own property, or own a business in the SWAN neighborhood, you are a member. SWAN welcomes you to its many shopping centers and eateries settled amongst hills and evergreens. To find out more about how you can become involved attend an upcoming meeting.
