Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization
Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization- You’re already a member!
A neighborhood is a group of residents, businesses, property owners, schools, agencies, and congregations within a designed geographical area. If you live, work, or own property in Salem, you are automatically a member of at least one NA (don’t worry, there aren’t any dues!). Neighborhood Associates meet regularly to address local issues and concerns, improve, their neighborhoods, and involve residents in local decision-making that affects their neighborhood and business, like park improvements, land-use changes, transportation, and crime prevention.
Strong communities are built on strong neighborhoods where people live and work together. Your Neighborhood accusation brings business and residents together to create a more livable community with activities designed to meet the unique characteristics of the neighborhood and provide a voice for you to participate in government decisions. There is no commitment, attend a meeting when you want, or join the board and take a vote on issues that matter to you.
Most people don’t know this, but you have a say in what happens in your city and the City of Salem through your neighborhood association wants to hear from you. Sign up to receive monthly meeting agendas from your neighborhood association at cityofsalem.net/neighbor. We promise we won’t overload your inbox! You can also contact Irma Dowd, Neighborhood Program Coordinator directly at email@example.com or call her at 503-540-2303 to learn more and get involved. CANDO meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6 pm.
