Welcome to Port Streets
Port Streets is recognized by locals as a “true neighborhood” complete with a beautiful park running through the community, inviting neighbors to interact with, and families to enjoy outdoor activities together. This friendly community includes streets with names like “Port Provence” and “Port Stirling,” which led to the neighborhood’s name of “Port Streets,” although its official name is Harbor View Homes.
The area was developed between the late 1960s and early 1970s—many of the homes are now remodeled or rebuilt with high-end details.
Brenda lived in the Port Streets for 15 years and raised her daughter there. She recognizes the welcoming neighborhood as the “best place in the world to raise a child” and make lifelong friends.
