Portland is growing rapidly and unfortunately the living standard is not changing as quickly. Rents are increasing beyond the means of long-time residents. Schools are not getting the funding needed to keep up with the growing population and changing needs. We don't have sidewalks in our area and walking my child to school is actually a safety hazard. There are not pedestrian or school zone warning signs nor is there a speed limit sign on our street (Cully and Skidmore).I daily see children have to jump out of the way of speeding cars- this has happened to myself and my daughter repeatedly. Comcast is the only internet provider in our area and thus charges monopoly driven prices. Businesses in our neighborhood (Cully) struggle. We don't have any restaurants outside of a couple dilapidated bars and the Albertson's deli. The homeless population is extending eastward from downtown and while waiting for the bus (since most things are beyond walking distance) we have to thwart off homeless who have staked the bus stops and benches as their territory. Hearing gunshots or screams from the nearby drug house are a common occurrence. I wish I could afford to move into a better school's boundaries, but rents are increasing at an extreme rate and as a student I literally can not afford to live anywhere else. This is NOT the Portland I moved to in 2012. It's turning into a nightmare.
Very diverse and inclusive. Can be pretty suspicious at times. But overall pretty good neighborhood.
