Be a part of our growing community   

By any measure, downtown Salem has many attractions as a place to live and work. While housing values were dropping in most parts of the country, Salem continued to grow - the result of its northwest quality of life, and the expansion of its private sector combine to keep home values appreciating and investment within the City strong.  Learn more about our people.

Salem's solid and expanding jobs base, plus Salem's reputation as an excellent location in which to retire, create some telling statistics: the per capita income of Salem's three fastest growing communities exceeds that of even Oregon's best-known resort communities, like Bend.    

If these conditions bode well for Salem, the future is even brighter.  A $250 million expansion of the Salem Hospital campus , including a new medical office building and new patient tower, leads a host of projects near the downtown corridor.
