If you are changing how you use your current property or you are improving your property, you may need approval from the City of Salem.
Step 1: Review requirements
The requirements and processes for
zoning and land use actions are different depending on what you want to do. Generally, actions fall into one of the following categories:
- Change your property use
- Change property boundaries
- Develop and build on your property
You should talk to a planner about your project if you do not know what land use approval you need. A planner can provide you with the information and application packet you need.
Step 2: Request a pre-application conference
request a pre-application conference to get detailed information on how to move forward with your project. In some cases, a pre-application conference is required. You can talk to a planner or consult the application packet for your land use action to find out if a pre-application conference is required.
Step 3: Submit your land use application
Once you know the submittal requirements, you are ready to complete and submit your land use application.
Land use procedure types determine the process used to make and appeal a requested land use decision under
Salem Revised Code Chapter 300.
