The community is invited to a public workshop on the Our Salem project Wed., Dec. 5, 6 - 8 p.m. at Court Street Christian Church, 1699 Court Street NE, Salem.
Residents will have the opportunity to learn more about the project and provide input on how the city should be evaluated as it grows and develops. A Spanish translator will be available, and refreshments will be provided.
The workshop is part of the first phase of the Our Salem project, which is a multi-year project to update the Salem Area Comprehensive Plan. This first phase, Our Salem: Today, is analyzing the existing conditions of the city and evaluating how Salem could grow under current policies. It includes a greenhouse gas inventory to better understand the community's impact on the environment.
This work will inform critical discussions and decisions about future growth in the city. The community identified a need to develop a vision for growth and development as part of the strategic planning process in 2017. To learn more about Our Salem, visit the project webpage.
