Committee Descriptions

OUTREACH & BUSINESS explores ways to engage the community. Members create flyers and coordinate outreach to neighbors and businesses, develop website copy, and produce events. We also work to find creative ways to connect neighbors with one another, with neighborhood businesses, and with other resources in the broader community.

LAND USE reviews development proposals, prepares comments and recommendations, and occasionally testifies to the Planning Commission or City Council. We also participates in City planning efforts.

BEAUTIFICATION leads litter clean-ups in the neighborhood, nominates and considers homes for “Bright Spot” Beautification Awards, and more.

SCHOOL LIAISONS remain in contact with the schools in our neighborhood to find out how we can help one another.

PARKS proposes park improvements and develops grant proposals.

DIGITAL ASSETS develops and maintains SESNA’s website, email database, and social media.

SAFETY & PREPAREDNESS coordinates with CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams) to help neighbors understand hazards and how to help themselves, their families, and their community in an emergency.

WATERSHED & FLOOD works with the City of Salem on plans impacting waterways and floodplains within the neighborhood and flood mitigation and response.
