At the City of Salem, we're following the Governor's Statewide Two-Week Freeze as of November 18, 2020 and hope you will too. To help slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce opportunities for continued transmission of the virus, we are making changes to some of our programs and services.
Parking affects the livability of our community and challenges City leaders to find the right balance between costs and need. Salem strives to achieve this balance through a variety of methods including:
- A Downtown Parking District, providing thousands of free customer parking spaces
- Residential Parking Districts that keep non-residents from parking for long time periods on designated residential streets
- Permits for events and construction work
Parking Services responds to violations between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays.
