Historic Landmarks Commission

Overview

​The Historic Landmarks Commission (HLC) was established in 1986 with the City’s adoption of a Historic Preservation Program. In 2010, an updated Historic Preservation Plan was adopted by the City and acts as the work plan for the HLC. The commission holds public meetings the third Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. It also meets as needed to conduct alteration reviews or other business.

Commission roles includes:

  • Advising the Council on matters pertaining to historic sites and structures in Salem
  • Administering the Historic Preservation Ordinance
  • Helping property owners preserve historic structures

The Commission is made up of City residents who volunteer their time and professional expertise to:

  • Review, designate, and encourage the preservation of historic resources
  • Review certain development applications for conformance with the historic preservation code standards and guidelines

Commission members must be residents of Salem or have their business in Salem, and they must have an interest in historic preservation. Additional commission membership requirements include:
