The City has set design standards and other regulations to make it easier for you to develop multifamily housing in Salem. Adopted in March 2020, the changes:
greater flexibility in how multifamily design standards can be met
Reduce the number of design standards for
small multifamily housing projects
Simplify the regulations for
three and four-unit projects
parking requirements for multifamily projects of all sizes
The changes are based on input from local officials and the public, including neighborhood association represenatives, developers, and others. Outreach included focus groups, a survey and public meetings.
