Salem Neighborhood Associations
Salem's 19 neighborhood associations play a valuable role in Salem. They give Salem residents a voice in their local community and the city as a whole.
Neighborhood association volunteers make a difference in the Salem community by providing information to decision-makers, working on neighborhood projects, and acting as a communication link between the City and other citizens.
The City assists neighborhood associations in achieving their goals through the help of Neighborhood Services staff, City staff who serve as liaisons to neighborhood associations, and the City's commitment as a whole to neighborhood associations.
