Welcome to the home page for the Rock Creek Community Association in Portland, Oregon!  Find all the information about your local community events here.
 
Mission Statement
 
The Rock Creek Community Association is a volunteer organization chartered to maintain the entrances and common areas of Rock Creek and support projects to improve our neighborhood. Our goal is to increase the quality of living in Rock Creek and at the same time increase property values for all residents. The RCCA meets every second Wednesday of the month at locations that are announced on this web page. Meetings begin at 6:30 pm and last approximately one hour. Everyone is welcome!

Upcoming Events
Monthly Board Meeting
Wednesday, June 19th, 6:30 PM at Rock Creek Country Club Condos meeting room
 
All Rock Creek residents are invited to attend RCCA’s upcoming May meeting being held at The Rock Creek Country Club Condos on Wednesday, June 19th from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.   Please park on Neakahnie Ave. or in the parking lot for the Rock Creek Country Club, since the Condos do not have non-resident parking available.  This is a great way to get acquainted with our current Board members, to see and hear the workings of your community association, share concerns, and/or offer suggestions for change.  The meetings are normally held every second Wednesday from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, but this month we pushed the meeting back by one week.
 
All membership is on a voluntary basis.  You will never find a more committed and fun group of individuals dedicated to the mission of this long-standing community association.   There are always volunteer opportunities for you outside the Board membership level.  However, if you are interested in serving on the Board in the future, we would love to hear from you. We really would like to have some interested individuals on the horizon in the event one or more of the members relocates or steps down from their elected position.  There are four officers, President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary – each a one-year term.  General Board members hold a two-year term, including the Landscape director.  All volunteer in various capacities when the need arises.  Even if you are not able to attend one or more of the meetings to decide if you would like to be more involved, please feel free to contact us with any questions or an offer to serve in any volunteer capacity by clicking here.
 
 
Neighborhood Garage Sale

Annual Rock Creek Community Association – Neighborhood Garage Sale

This year’s sale is Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June, 23 from 9 am to 3 pm.   Participants can do one or both days.  We are suggesting a $10 entry fee with all proceeds going towards our neighborhood enhancement projects.  This will also help towards promotion, advertising, and signage.   

We will have professional signs placed at each RC entrance 2 weeks ahead of time to alert people of sale, dates and times.  On Thursday, June 20, we will place additional professional signs with directional arrows at each main entrance AND major street intersections to guide shoppers, e.g. Malhuer, Columbia, Rock Creek Drive, Neskowin, Quail Hollow, etc.  Please consider putting up one or two signs of your own at the closest cross street to your home that will enhance the directions we’ve set given RC is such a large area. 

To register, please contact us at www.myrockcreek.com

You can pay by check (send to RCCA at PO Box 91103, Portland, OR 97291-0103) or pay using our Pay Pal account through our website www.myrockcreek.com/payment.php

Again, thanks for being a committed resident of our neighborhood and the Rock Creek Community Association (RCCA).  It is greatly appreciated.  We’re hoping this will be the biggest yet.   Please invite your neighbors and friends in RC to participate alone or together at one home.
 
If you have any questions, please contact me again through

Bark mulch for Rock Creek entrances
Posted on May 30th, 2024
The donations that you give to the Rock Creek Community Association go to maintaining and beautifying the entrances to our community.  To enhance the beauty of the entrances and help with weed control we apply dark hemlock bark mulch every couple of years, and we just had bark mulch blown in to all of the entrances.  Here are some photographs of the bark being applied.

Rock Creek Blvd. Speed Bumps Installed early after a very close vote
Posted on May 26th, 2024
Good news for those homeowners concerned about speeding on Rock Creek Blvd: the 5 speed bumps that were recently approved by the homeowners who live on Rock Creek Blvd. and the adjacent cul de sacs have been installed earlier than expected. Washington County originally expected the speed bumps to be installed in 2025, but one of their paving contractors had enough money left in their contract to allow the county to install them now instead of next year.
 
4 speed feedback signs are also being installed later this Summer.  Hopefully these improvements will make it safer for pedestrians, bikers, and residents who travel on this important road through the Rock Creek community.
 
 
The vote on the speed bumps illustrates just how important it is to get involved in your community. Residents along Rock Creek Blvd. passed the Washington County Neighborhood Streets Program's traffic calming plan by the slimmest majority possible!  A two thirds majority was required to pass the measure and it passed by just 1 vote. Thank you to the residents who tirelessly canvassed neighbors to turn in their votes.  Only residents along Rock Creek Blvd and the cul de sacs in the affected area from Malhuer to the soccer fields received surveys and were able to vote. Based on surveys received by the county, it passed by 67.26%.  There were 113 surveys sent, 89 returned, and 76 in support of traffic calming.  Non-responses were counted as "no" votes, and 67% "yes" votes were required to pass the measure.
 
 
Left turn lane for Neahkahnie off of West Union
Posted on Aug 30th, 2023
 
Good news for Rock Creek residents and visitors who use the West Union/Neakahnie entrance into our community.
 
After numerous accidents, close calls, lengthy waiting times because of long lines of cars at peak hours, and citizens reporting concerns to the county, construction on a westbound left-turn lane from West Union Road onto Neakahnie Ave has finally been completed.
 
Washington County has completed the left-turn lane from westbound West Union Road to Neakahnie Avenue, and now Westbound traffic on West Union can flow freely when someone needs to make a left-turn onto Neakahnie Avenue.

Mad Greek Deli returns to Rock Creek
Posted on Mar 25th, 2023
 
 
 
"New" to the Corner of 185th and West Union in Rock Creek.  Rock Creek Corner has closed but has reopened as the Mad Greek Deli.  With Spring comes fresh starts and new beginnings.  Yes, the Mad Greek has made its return to the west side! Their parking lot has been full every day since they opened in March.  They offer both indoor and outdoor dining and have a full menu with delicious Greek food.  They have installed state-of-the-art pizza ovens, so they can also offer pizzas as well.  Click here to view the menu
 
The owners of the former Rock Creek Corner are pleased to have this popular, locally owned establishment come in and they know that this change will be wildly popular with not just the neighbors who remember the Mad Greek in its previous location across the street, but also those who are new to the area and will be discovering it for the first time.  The Mad Greek Deli has had another location downtown on West Burnside since 2011, but their original location on West Union which had been there for over 20 years closed in 2015 due to problems with the building. Current owner Jake Marks said opening a new restaurant in the Bethany area is the best way they can honor his best friend and late owner, Pondo Kosmas, who died unexpectedly in 2016. Many of the former Rock Creek Corner staff are part of the new operation and the woman who has maintained all of the lovely gardens, flowers and herbs for Rock Creek Corner, has also returned.
