Connect with Community and Partners of East Salem

Categories:

​Community and Partners of East Salem (CaPES) grew out of the City’s Neighborhood Partnership Program with a focus on community building. Neighbors and community partners collaborate on a variety of efforts to strengthen the East Salem Neighborhoods (North Lancaster, East Lancaster, Lansing and Northgate Neighborhoods). The group is working to facilitate community connections, support children and families, and promote a safe, healthy, clean environment.

Neighborhood celebrations

Connect with your neighbors and strengthen your community with events of all sizes. You can invite a few people on your street for popsicles in your front yard or to a larger event at a community location.

Community gardens

Community gardens grow food, act as a community gathering space, and offer opportunities to connect with your neighbors. A few years ago North Lancaster neighbors transformed their undeveloped park into Brown Road Community Garden now home to garden plots, seating areas, children’s activity space, a walking path, and a little free library.

Little Free Libraries

Little Free Libraries are small, cabinet sized libraries that could go anywhere. Everyone is welcome to take or leave a book. These have been popping up all over the world since 2009. CaPES partners decided it was a great opportunity to support literacy and community shared space and they have supported the installation of six libraries in East Salem.
