Permit and License Fees

After review by the Building Codes Division, open public hearing, and approval through the City of Salem's public Council meeting process, our fees and methodology are adopted annually.  As a result, all of our applications are also updated during this time.  For this reason, please avoid keeping hardcopies on file and print from the application forms listing below, available for immediate use!

See our Building & Safety home page for fee details and application forms!

This Permits Section will help you transact your permitting/licensing business with the City of Salem.  In order to complete any application process, it is necessary to bring required information, materials, and payments to the Permit Application Center on the 3rd floor of City Hall, 555 Liberty Street SE, Room 320 - if you are unsure what these required items entail, please call us at (503) 588-6256, option 3.  If you are unsure when a permit is required, you can call the same number and request to speak with a Permit Technician or a Plans Examiner.  Review the links below for additional information on the permit you might be inquiring about.  

E-Permitting assists Licensed Contractors 

Licensed Contractors can now request many types of Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing permits online using the State of Oregon's e-permitting system - note the restrictions section, and try this user-friendly way to apply for and pay for over-the-counter permits.

Currently, we can only process certain payments via the Internet such as alarm permit renewals, then police protective and multifamily license renewals.  We accept credit/debit, check, cash, or money order as form of payment.

Using the information and services available on this website can greatly speed up transacting your business with the City of Salem. Another good source of information regarding permits and contractors can be found at http://permitsprotect.info/ .

Don't forget to check the current status of any pending permits or plan review ONLINE!
