The KNA welcomes all neighbors to attend the General Meeting and Annual Election on June 9th.
Due to COVID-19, this will be a hybrid event with in-person voting from 5-6:30pm outside the Historic Kenton Firehouse (8105 N Brandon Ave) along with an online event from 7-8pm via Google Meet. Agenda and online meeting details will be posted here.
During the online event, we plan to have a presentation on the Interstate Bridge Replacement program along with a discussion on the Columbia/Lombard Mobility Corridor Plan with the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
Like last year, the KNA will offer both online and in-person voting.
In-person voting will be held outside the Historic Kenton Firehouse (8105 N Brandon) on June 9th at 5-6:30pm. Online voting will start at 8am on June 9th and close at 8pm. You can vote here. Results will be announced on June 10th.
You must be 18 and over and live, lease, rent and/or own any real property within Kenton to be eligible to vote.
