What is public safety to you?

As the bad economy drives a resurgence of crime and gang activities in Portland, we want to know how the Neighborhood Associations and the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods can help. Questions posed at the last NECN Board Meeting:

1. What are your definitions of a safe place to live?
2. What are the steps we – as neighbors and neighborhood groups – can take to prevent or solve these issues (block watches, weekly trash pick-ups, etc)?

If you have a minute, join the dialog on neighborhood safety by answering these questions.
