Our Story

  • West Slope continues to explore the possibilities for the former nursery property in the neighborhood now owned by the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (THPRD). Their goal is to eventually turn the property into a neighborhood park. If you would like to join their efforts attend an upcoming meeting.
*Bring your ideas to our next meeting. Funds for projects are available through the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program.

About the West Slope NAC


Welcome to the West Slope Neighborhood Association Committee (NAC). We meet monthly to discuss ideas and issues and work on projects to improve our neighborhood. Anyone that lives, owns property (including a business), or represents a nonprofit organization within the neighborhood boundaries is a member! Please join us.

The NAC meeting is the designated forum for committee participants to share ideas and community news with neighbors. It is also an opportunity to meet with city officials on various issues throughout the year.

History


Black & white historic photo of Canyon Road with driver in a buggy pulled by a horse.The West Slope NAC derives its name from the Portland West Hills. The West Slope area is also host to the Sunset name.

In 1946, the Oregon State Highway Commission changed the name of what is currently Highway 26 to Sunset Highway. “This was in compliment to the 41st or Sunset Division of the United States Army which played a conspicuous part in both World War I and World War II … M.R. Chessman of Astoria suggested the name Sunset Highway because the Sunset Division had such a large proportion of men from the Pacific Northwest” (McArthur, 1992).
