About

SESNA, the Southeast Salem Neighborhood Association, was founded in 1976 and is today one of 18 neighborhood associations in the City of Salem, Oregon.

If you live – rent or own – or operate a business within SESNA’s service area, you are a member. There are no dues or applications required.

Monthly public meeting

In general, a public meeting is held on the fourth Tuesday of every month, starting at 7 p.m. Our Annual Meeting takes place in October.

These meetings are open to the public, are often attended by City officials (Police, Code Enforcement etc.) and offer an opportunity to ask questions and bring up concerns. If you wish to speak, contact us beforehand.

We meet at the community center of the Capital Park Wesleyan Church, 410 19th ST SE, Salem OR 97301. During summer meetings are held in the neighborhood parks.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to revise the meeting format. For the time being meetings are held online using the Zoom platform. Contact us to receive information on how to participate in an online meeting.

The board functions

SESNA’s bylaws govern its actions. The bylaws can be amended at each annual meeting, currently held in October. They were last updated in November 2013.
