Finally, the Gubser Neighborhood Association is officially Greater.
Leaders with the neighborhood association had voted several months ago to expand the boundaries, to match the Gubser Elementary School boundaries.
At the same time, adding “Greater” to the name was proposed to signify new neighborhoods being brought into the fold.
The issue came before Keizer City Councilors July 15. Councilors voted unanimously to allow the expansion. The association, which held its first annual neighborhood-wide garage sale last Saturday, is now the Greater Gubser Neighborhood Association (GGNA).
At a previous meeting in July Brad Coy, president of GGNA, estimated the expansion would mean 2,000 homes are within GGNA boundaries, roughly matching the size of the West Keizer Neighborhood Association.
