Contrast in adjoining neighborhoods: Old Town & Pearl

These two neighborhoods share a common border and both have a border on the Willamette River. Both are essentially in the River District Urban Renewal Area. The livability committees in the two neighborhood associations could not have different agendas.

In Old Town Chinatown Neighborhood Association they are worried mostly about drug dealing, drug use and prostitution. In Pearl - it is dog poop. Interesting no?
