Who are we?

We are the Lansing Neighborhood Association, (LNA), one of 18 Neighborhood Associations officially recognized by the City of Salem. Although Salem Neighborhood Associations are recognized by and receive staff support from the City, they are wholly self-directed. Each Association sets its own agenda and determines its own course of action. Neighborhood Associations have legal standing in all land use matters within their boundaries and are asked by the City and other jurisdictions to comment on a variety of matters important to the community. 

The purpose of a neighborhood association.

To promote community planning through Neighborhood participation

To advise City Council and City Staff on planning and environmental issues

To promote the livability of the Neighborhood

Who can become a member?

Any resident, business, or property owner between I-5 and Evergreen Avenue and between Market Street and Silverton Road is a member, and it costs nothing to join!

In addition to discussing issues of concern to the Lansing Neighborhood, a board of committed neighbors is elected to vote on issues of importance to the Neighborhood and submit those decisions to the City or other agencies.

Neighborhood associations address your concerns.

Neighborhood Associations create their goals and activities based on the interests of neighbors and the needs of the Neighborhood. We work on crime prevention, traffic solutions, and safety issues. Our Association has supported youth programs, planted trees, promoted neighborhood clean-ups, and built walkways. People who care about our Neighborhood have cooperated on worthwhile projects and gotten to know their neighbors better.


It's your neighborhood - Play an active part in it!
