Salem Community Vision -- I'm a member of the steering committee -- has come up with some goals for the Salem City Council to consider.
We believe that if our local elected officials made these goals a priority, Salem's citizens would benefit economically, culturally, environmentally, quality-of-life'ly and healthily.
Birds might also sing more tunefully; flowers would bloom more colorfully; the sun would shine daily, even when it is raining. That's how great these goals are!
They've been shared with the Mayor, City Manager, city councilors, and other City officials, who are going to have a 2015-17 goal-setting work session on March 16. An abbreviated version was published in the Statesman Journal as a letter to the editor.
I've added some links in the titles of the goals for anyone who wants more info about them. The image below comes from Salem Community Vision's project page, which includes Downtown Streetscaping.
