"A nonprofit organization dedicated to creating public gathering places with creativity, artistry, and compassion, City Repair is a catalyst for neighborhood-based interaction and transformation.

Despite early opposition, the City of Portland has embraced the idea, and City Repair has become a model for citizen-driven neighborhood improvement."
