Help Save Abbey Creek from Trophy Homes!
At the request of a developer, the Washington County Board of Commissioners greatly reduced a buffer that prevented homes from being built on the steep slopes above Abbey Creek on the north edge of North Bethany. The buffer was created to protect agricultural lands adjacent to the new urban development in North Bethany, but also protects the important wildlife corridor along Abbey Creek and ensures that homes won’t be built in areas which the state of Oregon has identified as landslide hazards. Land taken out of the buffer will be made into large lots for trophy homes.
Forest Park Neighborhood plans to appeal this decision, but we need donations to help with the cost. We want to protect the elk that use the wildlife corridor, but we need your help!

FPNA Participates in BioBlitz
The Forest Park Neighborhood Association (FPNA) is one of the city of Portland’s 95 neighborhood associations. It rests on the west side of Forest Park between NW Barnes on the south, Newberry Road on the north and the Washington County line on the west.
It is a unique rural and semi-rural neighborhood with homes that range from quiet in-the-woods houses to large places with views and vaulted ceilings. The homes are on subdivided lots or acreage ranging from 1 to 40 acres in size. We are part of a wildlife corridor that reaches as far as Oregon’s Coast Range supporting the biodiversity and wildness of Forest Park.
