South Central Association of Neighbors (SCAN)


The South Central Association (SCAN) wants everyone to thrive and reach their potential. The neighborhood is inclusive to all, and it consists of tree-lined streets, large parks, historic homes, and thriving businesses. Your vision can make a difference. Together, we are a community.

SCAN is located just south of the downtown area with the Willamette River as its east boundary. Many homes in the neighborhood, including Victorian and French country style residences, are listed on the National Historic Register. SCAN is home to Deepwood Estate and one of Salem’s largest parks, Bush’s Pasture Park.
