About Us

Welcome to Auburn Gresham's Smart Communities web portal. This community-owned portal is designed to foster and promote the VOICE'S of our neighborhoods, including Auburn-Gresham, West Englewood and West Chatham. If you live, work or shop in the area, take a look at what's going on in your community.

This is a chance for you to Share YOUR STORY, send news items, or directory listings (for your block club, business or organization) and important dates on our public calendar. Just click on the orange "Share stories, events, and listings" button (above) to submit information.

If YOU share on the portal, you will be investing in a tightly knit community.

The NEWS page is your place to talk about what's really going on in Greater Auburn Gresham and to locally document its culture through your story.  The CALENDAR fosters connections among neighbors by bringing you to events created for the community by the community. The DIRECTORY serves as a resource for hundreds of local businesses, fostering economic growth on your block. 

Find us on Facebook at "Auburn Gresham Portal."

Happy Sharing!
