Working in Stayton
I have lived in Stayton Oregon all of my life and absolutely love it! Stayton is a small town ,south of Portland, with a semi rural vibe. Living in Stayton I definitely got to know my neighbors, which can be very helpful and inviting. Since Stayton is small it is also not hard to find a way around town.I have enjoyed living in Stayton during my life and my favorite part is the smaller local businesses because we know what our money is going towards and it can create a feeling of content.
Stayton is actually a fairly nice place in comparison to some other towns that are similar in size. It’s in a really convenient spot easily accessible to Salem, Portland, Eastern Oregon etc. People are friendly and quick to say hi and I often see people I know at stores and other places. However, there is a rising drug issue and a lot of property crime. Parts of town are more run down than others, with downtown being run down. Along with there not having much to do except outdoorsy kinds of things. A revitalized downtown and more sit down places and even fast food places would go a long way. There’s so much potential in this little town.
Stayton is actually a pretty good town, it's right in between many cool places. Like an hour from Portland, an hour from the mountains, an hour from Eugene, 15 mins from Salem, and even an hour from the coast. Even though the nightlife may be lacking you can just drive into Salem and do whatever there. Overall I believe Stayton to be a great town to live in
