The Sunnyslope neighborhood is a great place to live, and it’s because of all the things neighbors do, like lending a hand to those who need extra help, keeping their properties clean and maintained, and picking up trash while they’re out and about.
So what else can you do?
Get to know your neighbors and help your neighborhood be safe:
Keep the neighborhood clean and beautiful:
- Pick up trash as you walk through our neighborhood parks, or go the next step and become a Park Partner.
- If you see graffiti:
Note the location and a description of the graffiti, and report it to the Salem Police Graffiti Abatement Unit, by calling 503-371-4264. If it is on your property, help the police by reporting it before you clean it up. Find out more about Graffiti Abatement and clean-up here.
- Find out how you can help your neighbors who are having trouble keeping lawns mowed and properties maintained. Find our more about City property maintenance codes here.
- Learn how to organize a clean-up event here.
Protect neighborhood children and pets:
- Drive the speed limit or under in the neighborhood. This also discourages cut-through traffic on residential streets.
Let your voice be heard:
- Attend Sunnyslope Neighborhood Association meetings to learn about decisions that will impact our neighborhood and give your input to decision-makers.
Prevent flooding and protect fish:
- Keep storm drains clear. Rake leaves and other debris away from storm drains.
- Volunteer to mark storm drains “Dump NO Waste – Drains To Stream.” Find out how here.
