Annual National Night Out events are set for Aug. 6

City will help residents looking to host their own event


The city of Wilsonville encourages residents to consider hosting a neighborhood National Night Out event on Tuesday evening, Aug. 6.

While not a city-sponsored program, the city can help request a visit by police and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue if they are available.

Those interested in participating may contact Jeanna Troha, assistant city manager, at 503-570-1520 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

No city permit is needed if events are held on private property and do not block street traffic. If neighbors seek to close a street to traffic or to hold a gathering on public property or a park, a permit may be needed; for details contact Brian Stevenson, recreation coordinator, at 503-570-1523 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

“National Night Out provides an opportunity for neighbors to get to know one another,” said Wilsonville Police Chief James Rhodes. “It heightens crime-prevention awareness and strengthens neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.”

National Night Out organizers may obtain a “coordinator tool kit” and register with the National Association of Town Watch at natw.org.

National Night Out is a nationwide program started in 1984. It is sponsored by National Association of Town Watch, an organization dedicated to preventing crime.
