Jan Ree Neighborhood
The Jan Ree neighborhood lies about as far north as possible in Salem, Oregon, and still is in the urban growth boundary. It is a subsection of the greater Hayesville area. There are many phases to this subdivision with homes starting to be built in the 1970 range and continuing until after the Great Recession. The real estate available in this neighborhood has traditionally been one-level homes, but the latest phases (9 and 10) had many two-story homes, as well. JDC was one of the most recent builders of homes in this neighborhood. Of special note about Jan Ree, and east Salem in general is the meandering city limits line. Some of Jan Ree sits in city limits and some is outside of it. So some of the infrastructure, such as police, etc will come from the Marion County Sherriff vs. Salem PD.
Jan Ree does not land on our walkable neighborhoods list because there aren’t restaurants or grocery stores within walking distance. This is a very car-dependent neighborhood. Generally, homes are in the $400,000-$550,000 range depending on the quality and lot size. There is a small section of homes in Jan Ree that have .50 acre lots and they sell very quickly when they come on the market.
Hammond Elementary School sits at the easternmost edge of this neighborhood and gives the neighborhood its park as well. Most of Jan Ree feeds into Hammond Elementary School, but a portion of this neighborhood flows into Hayesville Elementary. If schools are important to you, remember to check the latest boundaries with the school district. Then it flows into Stephens Middle and McKay High School. There is a nice developed park within the bounds of the neighborhood just off of Lisa and Kale called Hoodview Park. It has a walking path and playground equipment for kids. It is a well-used park in the neighborhood.
