File Naming Standards for Land Use Applications

Categories:

Using a consistent file name simplifies the review process.  Each document should be uploaded as a separate PDF.

The City of Salem’s naming standard for land use applications includes the following:

  1. A two-digit number used to control the sort order of documents during review. Use the numbering guidelines listed below.

  2. A short description of the type of document as indicated in the guidelines below.

  3. A process indicator and number: Use REV01, REV02, REV03 etc. after the file name as the process indicator when you are uploading revised documents.

Note: Make sure you do NOT use commas, spaces, # signs or other symbols in your file names. Our system will not upload those files correctly.

Not all documents are applicable to every application, please see the application checklist for the documents required for your submittal.
