Moving to Portland in 2016

My daughter of 8 and I are moving to Portland next June and I have looked at the most popular neighborhoods, and the neighborhoods surrounding downtown are more inviting probably because I don't drive however my daughter is into dance so I prefer a school of the arts. I am self employed from home so that is no issue . Can someone advise me on the best places to live and rent also the best schools foe elementary. I am a single parent do I am looking for affordability .

Best Portland Oregon Hotels - or where to stay when you need to lay your head down at night

If you're traveling to Portland Oregon, either to visit or in preparation for moving there, you need to have a place to stay. Many people stay out at the Portland Airport, making a common mistake in thinking that it is "centrally located to everything."

No... not even close. It can easily take 45-60 minutes in normal traffic to drive the few miles from the airport to downtown. Longer if it is rush…

"Hello Faliscia, The first question is "what is your budget?" That is going to narrow your choices drastically. Richmond, Boise, Sunnyside, Mt. Tabor are all great areas. But not helpful if you can only afford to live in Centennial. "

U.S. Coast Guard: Police Will Remove Protesters Hanging from St. Johns Bridge

The U.S. Coast Guard is coordinating with state officials and Portland police to remove Greenpeace protesters dangling from the St. Johns Bridge to block a Shell Offshore icebreaker, WW has confirmed.

"We are working with local agencies to manage a safe and effective solution," says Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer First Class George Degener. "The agencies went down to the individuals and informed them that they were breaking the law."

The Oregon Department of Transportation spokesman Don Hamilton says Oregon Gov. Kate Brown gave permission this afternoon for the Coast Guard to shut down the bridge. (ODOT has authority over the St. Johns Bridge.)

"I'm not aware of what's going to happen in this process next," Hamilton says, "and I doubt that I would tell you if I did know. Let me tell you this: This is a very fluid situation."

Multiple news reports show Portland Police Bureau riot police gathering at the top of Cathedral Park. A Coast Guard officer told WW reporters on the scene that law enforcement officials were preparing to extract the dangling protestors.

The actions by law enforcement follow a failed attempt by the Shell icebreaker Fennica to leave its dry dock this morning, and a ruling by a federal judge that Greenpeace must pay Shell $2,500 for each hour protesters block the ship's departure.

UPDATE, 3:22 pm: Protest organizers confirm that Portland police officers have begun removing activists dangling from ropes. "Support needed ASAP," they wrote in a mass text. "Climbers are being extracted."

Protesters are steaming live video of the removal. Watch it here:
