Calls to police cut by 57%

Crime Statistics:
I want to share some great news with you!
Since Our 'Happy Block' project broke ground....
calls to police have been cut by
We went from 137 calls to police to 59.
(number of calls to police in 1-year concerning activity within a 500-foot radius of our project)

(See the statistics, in detail, at the bottom of this post)

......If you see anything that is suspicious and not an emergency, please call the non-emergency police line at 503-823-3333

This is the best way to keep crime rates down in our neighborhood.
*Also, It's time to get our hands dirty again:
The weeds are beginning to sprout in our new landscape, if you have time to stop by and pull up some of those pesky weeds that would be great!

I will probably organize a day where we can tackle the weeding as a group, but please (if you can) stop by and pull some weeds in the mean time!
