Abstract: This thesis interweaves the history of Portland, Oregon's grassroots "livability" and city-led "sustainability" initiatives to better understand ways that 16 Neighborhood Associations (NAs) in Portland Southwest district have contributed to City government's official prioritization of sustainable development. I propose that Portland has achieved success with sustainable development, in part, because sustainable development initiatives coincide with citizens' strongly rooted understanding of "livability", which evolved during the "Neighborhood Revolution" in the 1960's and 70's. I use a grounded theory approach to identify themes in NA concerns and operations as they emerge at the neighborhood level. My research aims to add to a body of literature that acknowledges the myriad of ways that local citizens participate in urban sustainable development initiatives. At a time when sustainable development continues to gather momentum in business and politics, my research intends to remind sustainability proponents that it is inherently necessary to include citizens in policy formation and beneficial to prioritize citizens' local concerns.
