We want to know what you think about the Draft Vision for future growth and development in the Salem area. 

The draft vision was developed as part of the Our Salem project after more than a year of outreach. It includes goals and a map that reflect priorities we've heard from the community.

Once you have looked at the Draft Vision, please take the Vision Survey to give your input.

The vision is part of a multi-year project to update the Salem Area Comprehensive Plan, which guides development in the Salem area. 

We will continue our outreach in the community this fall and winter to ask for feedback on the draft vision. Based on your input, we will refine the draft vision. We expect to present the final vision to the City Council for discussion and acceptance in early 2021.

Any updates to the Comprehensive Plan or changes to the Comprehensive Plan Map would not occur until late 2021 after public hearings and approval by the City Council.

You can see what changes are proposed for specific properties in this interactive map. To read detailed explanations of the map, visit this page.

You can also see the proposed changes outlined or incorporated into the following PDF maps:
