City of Salem
Boards, Committees, and Commissions


The Salem City Council is made up of eight City Councilors, each elected to represent one of Salem's Wards and the Mayor, who is elected by voters throughout the City. They are volunteers who spend countless hours studying city issues and working to both solve problems and take advantage of the opportunities facing local government.

Over the years, the City Council has developed an extensive system of citizen groups established to advise them in specific subject areas, such as, the budget, land use, and social services.

The City currently has 20 boards, commissions, and committees appointed to research and advise the City Council on issues in each specifically focused area. Please browse through the links and find a wide variety of information on each board & commission, including current members and membership requirements. Applications are considered active for one year.  Please feel free to contact the City Manager's office at (503) 588-6255 if you have general questions related to Boards and Commissions.

    Other Advisory Groups

    From time to time, City Council will appoint a group of stakeholder representatives to advise them on an issue of interest in our community. These groups, often established as a Task Force or Subcommittee, may include the Mayor, Councilors, residents and business representatives with interest in a particular area of Salem or interest specific to the issue. Some are on-going, ad hoc or of limited duration. These groups hold public meetings, are often staffed by those with subject matter expertise and professional experience, and develop recommendations for the City Council to consider.
