The North East Salem Community Association, which represents the community bordering Northeast Neighbors to the East, has announced a Town Hall Meeting with Representative Brian Clem to discuss the latest news regarding redevelopment of the North Campus of the Former Oregon State Hospital, located between Center and D Streets in Northeast Salem.

As many of you may know, after successfully halting what many felt was an ill-timed and executed sale effort, Rep. Clem requested funds to prepare the property for sale, including the demolition of the majority of the buildings on the site. After considerable discussion, the membership of NESCA voted to support the Representative's initiative, which is still pending in the Legislature. The NEN board is also considering a motion to formally support Rep. Clem's initiative, but has not completed deliberations.

Rep. Clem is holding a Town Hall Meeting where he will discuss the project generally and his specific efforts and the future of the project on June 2nd at 6 p.m. at the Hoover School cafeteria, located at 1104 Savage Road NE, Salem, OR 97301.

Residents of NEN are welcome to attend to learn more about this important development that will impact the quality of life for our neighborhood and broader community.
