Vision and Mission
The Cully Blvd. Alliance (CBA), governed by the CBA Steering Committee is a coalition of Community and Businesses promotes and fosters opportunity for economic prosperity that cultivates diversity, nurtures community and empowers the neighborhood.
Cully is a place known for its welcoming spirit where neighbors greet visitors warmly. Sharing their voices and experiences with pride and celebrating the many opportunities to learn, serve, work and build a shared future. It is a community where stories of personal and professional success are common and elders, children, grandchildren, friends, families, and neighbors all thrive and care for one another.
At the heart of Portland’s historic Cully neighborhood is Cully Boulevard where a vibrant and thriving multicultural Business District creates jobs and business opportunities for the entire community. It is a place where shoppers from the neighborhood and visitors from far and near gather at their favorite destinations while happy, healthy pedestrians walk, roll and stroll, and cyclists ride; all served by safe and connected streets.
The CBA work is centers around the idea that residents should live in a community in which one can “Live Here, Work Here, and Shop Here,” and the CBA believes this will be best achieved through the Community Wealth Building Approach.
