south portland crewOne of thirty-six unique district business associations in the Portland metro area, the South Portland Business Association’s coverage mirrors the South Portland Neighborhood Association’s borders: I-405 to the north, Barbur Boulevard to the west, Sellwood Bridge to the south, and Willamette River to the east.

Within these borders lie three neighborhoods: John’s Landing, Lair Hill, and the historic South Waterfront. Over nine hundred businesses occupy these three neighborhoods, offering neighborhood residents & visitors a wide plethora of options.

By hosting networking opportunities for business owners & stakeholders; by hosting best practice seminars; by implementing diverse marketing opportunities for all members; by strengthening our community through newly opened communications channels: the South Portland Business Association remains dedicated to improving our local business culture.
