To: All Wilkes East residents
From: Nick Kantor, Community Habitat Steward -City of Gresham

"I have 15 crabapples (8- Royal Raindrop, and 7- Red Jewel) I want to plant in Gresham. I would like to pick one neighborhood or street. It has to be a neighborhood with a 2.5 to 4 ft. planting strip near the street. The sooner the better. They are in containers and I would like to make the planting of the trees a volunteer event for sometime in May."

If you are interested, please contact Nick Kantor, Community Habitat Steward - City of Gresham, call 503-618-2740, or email nick.kantor@ci.gresham.or.us.

Taking A Bite Out Of Crime,
One Block At A Time

Start your own Neighborhood Watch

Benefits of Neighborhood Watch

The benefits are many… beyond preventing crime and reducing fear, Neighborhood Watch (NW) builds pride, forges bonds among block residents - by really getting to know and look out for neighbors, improves citizen-police relations, and can address other block issues and concerns like child safety, youth development, senior citizen welfare, and quality-of-life.

Neighborhood Watch depends on citizen involvement to prevent and discourage crime. You're not asked to take personal risks, only to serve as extra “eyes and ears” and to report information on crimes and suspicious activities promptly.

Neighborhood Watch groups in your area

To locate a Wilkes East Neighborhood Watch group in your area, or to start a new group, contact neighborhood association members Lee Dayfield at leedayfield@wilkeseastna.org, or Kris Freiermuth at krisfreiermuth@wilkeseastna.org.

What is Neighborhood Watch?

The Neighborhood Watch Program is a highly successful effort that has been in existence for more than thirty years in cities and counties across America. It provides a unique infrastructure that brings together local officials, law enforcement and citizens to protect our communities.

Around the country, neighbors for three decades have banded together to create Neighborhood Watch programs. They understand that the active participation of neighborhood residents is a critical element in community safety

Before we get to the information below, I want to thank all of you on behalf of Gresham Parks and Recreation for the time you give to take care of the earth and to encourage others to do so. There seems to be a major shift taking place in the public's awareness of environmental issues, and you have helped make that critical change happen.
