Hayden Island NET (or “HINET” as we call it) is a relatively new addition to the Portland family of NETs.
We are located on Hayden Island, in North Portland – the last stop before you leave Oregon going north on I-5. Currently we have about 15 active NET members, all living on the island. Our community presents some unusual challenges: there are about 3,000 people living on the island in single family homes, condos, manufactured homes, RVs and floating home communities. Our shopping mall is a favorite destination for out of state shoppers, and at some times in the year we estimate there may be 10,000 people on the island. Side by side with our housing communities, we have light industry, commercial areas, hotels, marinas and lots and lots of boats. Much of life on the island is focused on the Columbia River.
We have monthly team meetings and we welcome interested residents and other NETs to our meetings.
